    Depo-Provera (birth control shot in the 90’s…not sure it’s still used) triggered a 6-year battle with depression for me. By the Grace of God and consistent exercise, I managed to get off heavy duty anti-depression meds like Paxil (ughhh) so that I could embark on the journey to motherhood and beyond. 10 years later, I have a 9 yo old, and I am drug and depression free and I will never touch any kind of hormones ever again. Exercise continues to be my drug of choice and I really feel it helps to keep me depression free.

    Hi there ,
    I read both parts of your article and can relate. However I’ve only had mine in a little over two weeks! I had a SEVERE panic/anxiety attack at work yesterday and an even worse one today (thank goodness I was home). I have tried other birth controls many years ago. Pills, and the Nuva ring (before the law suit) and they all made me profusely sick (and this was before I was diagnosed with manic depression)…I made an appointment to take the Kyleena out tomorrow because I’m so scared of the way I’m feeling. I wish there was another way but I’m only 30 and definitely not ready for a hysterectomy!
