Could the pill (Seasonale) be making me feel kind of sad all the time? Like, brokenhearted?

I was just noticing that I have been weepy since I started taking it, yet my situation really hasn't gotten worse, in fact, in a lot of ways, it's better.

I have a ton of friends, but I feel so lonely. I'm wondering if the pill has anything to do with that.

One common side effect of the pill and many other hormonal methods of birth control are mood changes and/or an increase in depression.

So, yes, the pill could be contributing to feeling down.
