Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that mood swings are a side effect of any birth control method.  They are almost inevitable when one is 18 years old, also.  (or at any age really!)
If you were my patient, I would encourage you to stick with the implant for a bit longer as the side effects often disappear over time.  In the meantime, maybe you should consider some means to reduce your stress, such as exercise, yoga, etc.
Hope this helps!
Dr B

Is there any medication or anything I can take to control my mood swings?
Thanks
