Mayflower22

Just a question for those diagnosed with endometriosis. I had surgery to diagnose and remove Endo back in February, I am doing really well physically and have healed well. My cycle has gone back to normal and is so much more manageable. That said, I am having a huge problem with mood swings and irritability. I have never had this before to this extent. My doctor put me on a strong birth control to help with endometriosis so I'm sure that is it or is at least some of it. Does anyone have any tips on how to manage/ has anyone experienced this.

      @IndoorCat it can be at times yeah. Unfortunately my doctor isn't willing to switch me to something else Since this one helps endometriosis the best.

      I dealt with the same thing after surgery when on birth control. I had a lot of trouble at first and would cry at random times. It did go away for me after a couple of months of my body adjusting to the medication, but I ended up going off of it because of other side effects.

        @Coffeeluv I really appreciate you sharing. I have the same issue, I will get irritated or sad out of nowhere. Hopefully it will adjust soon

      If it's unbearable or disruptive to daily life then it's best to ask for a different birth control if it hasn't stopped after a few weeks

One user shared that birth control helped control her endometriosis pain and made her periods bearable, but it also made her more emotional. Another user mentioned experiencing anger and mood swings after having excision surgery for endometriosis. It seems that these mood changes could be a side effect of the treatment for endometriosis, but it's always best to consult with your doctor about these symptoms.
