Did you find one that didn't make you crazy?

yeah, I went back to the bc i'd been on in high school, generic name "portia." it's a second-generation rather than a third generation pill. the synthetic progesterone starts as testosterone, instead of starting as a testosterone antagonist. so it has a higher affinity for the testosterone receptor and more androgenic affects, is my understanding.

i have gone back to the bad side effects that made me switch in the first place. i gained 5-8 lbs. my zits came back. but there is a lot. less. crazy. and i decided i'd rather be fat than crazy. and when i start riding my bike to school again when it warms up, i feel confident i'll lose the weight. i hope.

i would love to go off hormones entirely- i actually wanted to do the copper IUD thing, but the reason i went on bc originally, long time ago, is that i had really terrible cramps (throwing up, ect). and the copper IUD, apparently, has a side effect of potentially terrible cramps, chances of which are increased with a history of terrible cramps. so no copper IUD for me. but i can't go off bc entirely, because i am NOT ready to be pregnant.
