yes, birth control can make women VERY moody. it can also do strange things to libido. so if you have crazy mood swings, TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR and try to hash out whether bcp is a good idea for you.
If you have a history of being depressed or having serious mood swings, then yes, there is a chance that BC can make them worse. Really, you should talk to your gynocologist about your concerns - write down all the questions you have about BC and ask them when you go to see her.
