In addition, estrogen in contraceptives can increase the metabolism of tryptophan in the liver, and vitamin B6 is a coenzyme component in tryptophan metabolism. Vitamin B6 deficiency can hinder tryptophan metabolism, and then it can cause the dysfunction of nervous system. Therefore, some women will appear melancholy, pessimism, easy excitement, irritability and other performances after taking contraceptives.
