Birth control ruined my life
(Ohio, US )
Hello, I am a 24 year old female from the US. I have been on birth control since I was 14. I normally was either on the pill or depo vera shot. When I was 20 I got the nexplanon implant. Last January (2019) I decided to get it taken out and just not use birth control anymore. About a month after when I started getting periods again I felt like I was dying. I would shake uncontrollably. I had constant fevers and terrible anxiety. My anxiety became so bad that I missed months of work. I would get dizzy and feel like nothing was real. I have NEVER had anxiety like this. I noticed it was extremely bad at the beginning and end of my periods. I saw multiple doctors and obgyn's and none of helped me at all. They all either tried to prescribe me xananx or tell me to go talk to a therapist. I asked them to check my hormone levels and every time my progesterone was low. Still no help from them, I decided to go back on the nexplanon. My symptoms are not as bad, but still I have crazy mood swings and my anxiety has never gone away.
This is not normal and I want my life back. I have been using the cream a week and two days. I've been taking omega 3 and d3 everyday for six months now and it has helped some. I don't want to leave my house ever because of how I feel. Before the nexplanon I was happy and healthy and wanted to take on the world. After about three days of using this cream I started my period and my anxiety is always way worse when I am on my period. Is there hope? I am currently using 8 pumps a day sometimes more.
Any advice at all would be helpful. I want to get the nexplanon out but I'm scared and I cannot afford to miss anymore work.
