HI, I am new to the forums'. I am 20 years old, and I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 16. I am currently taking LAMICTAL, for the disorder. Yesterday, my OB/GYN prescribed the Nuva Ring since I was having pain in my lower abdomen. He thinks it is Endmetriosis, I have my tubes tied, and I started the birth control to aleviate some of the pain in my stomach. Since I started the birth control I have been feeling really depressed, and little psychotic. When I was 18 my therapist told me that my bipolar get worse when I take birth control ( anything with hormones), I am starting to get nervous that I am going to lose it.
