I am currently on the Levest pill (prior to that Microgynon).

Resolved Question:

I am currently on the Levest pill (prior to that Microgynon). I am experiencing severe mood swings, anger and depression. I am not keen to use the mini pill due to breakthrough bleeding, could you recommend a combined pill which would not have the same severity of mood swings?
I have no other health issues and am not on any medication.
