Progesterone only pill

Hi my daughter has started taking the P- O pill. She has had severe mental ill health problems with the combined pill and now seems to be going the same way with this one. Does anyone have experience of these symptoms improving after the 3 months recommended? Can any young 20-somethings recommend non-hormonal methods other than condoms that they have had success with?

I am 30 and suffer with Depression, i find the combined pill affects me. So does POP but not as much.

The doctor has recommended the coil to me (not the copper one) as less of the hormones get absorbed into the body.

I havent tried it yet as i am going completly hormone free for a while.

Hope this helps
