side effects of birth control


I would appreciate it greatly if you could help me with this question: Recently I have started taking Oral Contraceptives again. I have taken them in the past and strongly disliked the mood swings-- which for me manifests as depression. I avoided them for a long time, but now have a steady partner and feel like it is necessary to be on them. Three out of four people in my immediate family suffer from chronic depression and I feel as though I walk a thin line. I constantly need to be aware of the choices that I make to prevent depression.

Through the research I have done, it seems as though herbal remedies are not the route to go because they can either reduce the effectiveness or even act as a double dose.

Does anybody know of a homeopathic remedy that could support the depression caused by birth control pills?
How long does it take before you start to feel the effects?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your best bet is to go natural, therefore no side effects.
My naturopath recemmended against herbal birth control.
My homeopath does not recommend anything either way...

This was the best suggestion I got:
