You may experience bleeding even outside of your period.

The pill can cause depression and mood disorders

This issue is quite complex, but there is definitely a link between mood and hormones in women.

However, some women reported that birth control pills actually improved their mood. This is a sign that everyone reacts to hormones in the same way.
