Hey,

First off calm down and breathe. She is very young in the first place to be on BC but I guess since kids are getting their periods so early it's better. You should take her off that BC because there has beena  study n Yaz BC and it really messes up a womans health. Read about Yaz BC on google, wiki, helth boards..etc. you'll see that this BC is being called back alot because of health problems developing in girls taking this medicine. So, my advice read about Yaz then decide what you want to do. Calm down and be nice to your daughter, it might not be her fault her mood swings are getting worse. It can be the yaz.

Good luck and relax,
Irenia :)
