Dr. Ed Wilfong :

My guess is the hormonal implant in arm. It can change mood dramitically.

i had one for 3 years and no poblems this one has been in nearly a year.... but i never wanted kids as i knew my husband didnt now i feel like i want them

JACUSTOMER-ugx3y68h- :

what do you suggest??

JACUSTOMER-ugx3y68h- :

im more emotional

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

I would guess then it is the emotional conflict/depression. Keep exercising and f/u with doctor to see if dose of antidepressant is sufficient. Cymbalta may be better with weight and energy.
