I was taught in medical school in 1969 that the progestins contained in birth control pills, hormonal intrauterine devices and depaprovera injections are contraindicated in girls and women who are prone to depression. I find it bewildering – since all doctors learn this in medical school – that doctors prescribe antidepressants for these teenagers. Instead of stopping the hormones and prescribing a barrier method instead. I find it amazing so many doctors forget everything they learned in medical school the moment the Big Pharma rep walks in the door.

A striking new study published in JAMA Psychiatry links hormonal contraceptives to depression, especially in teenage girls.
The findings aren’t surprising to many women.
A professor at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and lead supervisor of the study, Dr. Øjvind Lidegaard said:
“We have known for decades that women’s sex hormones estrogen and progesterone have an influence on many women’s mood. Therefore, it is not very surprising that also external artificial hormones acting in the same way and on the same centers as the natural hormones might also influence women’s mood or even be responsible for depression development.”
