Good morning everyone.
I feel bad about posting too much positivity on this site as I know everyone is generally suffering, or in a temporary period of happiness. It's just that I wonder if anyone has spontaneously been cured of depression after coming off the contraceptive pill?
I have been on Cerazette for over 12 years, and before that on and off the pill since I was a teenager, which was when I first had an episode of depression. I have had many episodes of depression since and have currently been on Fluoxetine since 2009. Only a few months ago I was 'putting my affairs in order' and having a clear out at home thinking of 'the end'.
After a mix up at my surgery I was without my Cerazette prescription for over a week, the first time I had been without it in years. By the end of that week without the pill my mood had lifted considerably! My libido came back (wow!), I had energy and the motivation to get out and do things. Household chores became a pleasure and my windows have never looked so sparkly!
Because of the correlation between mood and coming off the pill I decided to carry on without it. It is now six weeks, and despite getting a really sore bust for a few weeks prior to my first period in years, I still felt fab EVERY DAY. I really can't believe the change in me. I have even been thinking about how to boost my pension and plan for the future now that I want to be on this earth for as long as I can.
I'm on the max of Fluoxetine so have an appt with my GP in 3 weeks to discuss coming off it slowly as I have read some horror stories.
Does anyone have a similar story?
