I was just wondering if anyone on here has tried The Patch Birth Control, and whether or not they know if it's available in Australia.
I have an existing experience with The Pill, where tried a couple and my anxiety skyyyy rocketed (panic attacks) taking over my life literally, I look back now as I'm much better years on and I literally don't even recognize myself. So as you can imagine I am very hesitant and frightened at even the though of Birth Control. I still tend to get anxious now and then with symptoms but no where near as bad.
However, I need to consider that at the same time I started birth control, I was going through A LOT. I was in an abusive first time relationship that I needed to end, I had a loss in the family (first time ever) and a bunch of other stuff (health anxiety related.)
I'm much better now, but a lot of those issues are now gone and I'm considering trying the pill again, well in this case the patch, to see whether it was my environmental factors creating my panic or the pill?
Just reaching out to see if anyone's tried it, and if so how was your anxiety / depression / mental state?
