Patient :I was on birth control pills for 10 years and went off of them about 4-5 months ago. Since I have been off them I am getting terrible mood swings before my period. I have never experienced anything like it,. even as a teenager. I am 27 years old, and am wondering what is going on? Will this mellow out with time, and how long will it take to get all these birth control pill hormones out of my body?
