    Did your (or your girfriends') PMS get ten times worse once she got off birth control?
    This shit is ridiculous.

    I've never been off my BC after using it for 8 years....but I will say that there are BC's known for helping women who have PMDD, which is severe form of PMS.

    Any idea what BC she took? And why did she get off of it?

    So tell her to go to her gyno and get on another form of BC. I have yet to meet a girl who liked the shot. Hope you are wearing condoms.

    i had a really hard time both going on and getting off depo... headaches, mood swings, etc.

    i'm on the nuvaring now and getting on it wasn't bad at all.

    I take the pill Microgestin. It doesn't have the varying level of hormones so i can skip a "off" week and keep taking it with no consequences. Most people can't even tell if i am pms'ing, it has always kept me level headed.

    When I went off it, I turned into SUPER bitch during that time.

    Plus skipping the week is always nice... i hate having to deal with it.

    I think I'm one of the few people who actually had no issues getting on or off of the shot - both were pretty easy. I pretty much loved Depo until I stopped taking it after 4+ years. I lost my period which was great - and after dealing with PMS/cramps with my first 2 post-Depo periods, I decided Lybrel was probably the way for me to go.. :o

    Her hormones are obviously going to be all discombobulated right now after taking BC. I would bet that her PMS might have A LOT to do with stopping Depo, especially if she lost her period while on Depo. She should certainly talk to her gyno about starting another form of BC, There are formulas out there for everyone, and expressing her concerns to her doc can help find what's right for her.
