I've been on Ortho TriCyclen Lo for about a year and a half now. I am sick and tired of feeling like crap constantly. I was on Ortho TriCyclen before for a year, and I didn't feel quite as bad as I do now, but I didn't feel like myself either. My particular symptoms are anger, anxiety and depression. I know my Mom has always had trouble with hormornal birth control too. I am going to finish this cycle, which thankfully ends this Sunday, then I am done. We are going back to condoms for a while, and I hope we'll eventually settle on a vasectomy, but the long term plan is still up in the air. I went off of the pill once before, but it has been about ten years now, and I can't even remember which brand I was on back then. Ladies, what should I expect?
