Anxiety and Progestin

Pamela

I started taking a mini pill (synthetic progesterone only/no estrogen) about a week and a half ago. I have been diagnosed with forms of anxiety in the past but have not been seeing a professional lately because it really seemed to be under control. It seems that the past few days, my anxiety symptoms have flared up at an alarming rate. (worried constantly that I’m about to get fired, that my best friend hates me, that my boyfriend is about to leave me, my family doesn’t love me etc) I’m worried that I may be psyching myself out since I’ve heard stories that birth control may cause this. My question is, is it too soon to blame these symptoms on my birth control or could it have actually started manifesting that quickly? Does anyone have the same thing happen to them? Should I stick it out and keep taking the pills to see if things “level out”?
