Okay so, I have a history of anxiety but had never suffered from depression until a year and a half ago. Doctors diagnosed it as Post-Natal but my Councillor diagnosed it as PTSD due to an incident that happened.
Anyway, I was put on medication, regular meetings, courses. However, I didn't feel any of these were helping so I decided to join the gym as exercise releases endorphins. This helped a little but I was still suffering from severe depression to the extent where I contemplated and toyed with taking my own life.
Because I was feeling slightly better and still ongoing therapy for my depression, my partner and I decided we would start trying for another child. So I came off my Cerazette and Citalopram and within a couple of weeks my mental health greatly improved!
That's 6 months now and I haven't had a single bad day. I stopped attending therapy a month after coming off my medication because I honestly felt great and couldn't understand why I ever felt so bad.
The only thing I can think is that my mind react very badly to my Cerazette after having my little girl. And I say that because the depression actually started just after starting back on my Cerazette. I done some research and found a couple of other cases similar to mine.
Never again will I choose hormonal contraceptives and if my case sounds similar to yours I suggest you do the same.
I wish they would do a study on Cerazette for this sort of side effect because it nearly took my life and a few others.
