Abstract: 
Oral contraceptives (OCs) are used worldwide, including Lebanese women. However, the association between OCs use and anxiety or depression remains unclear. This study aims to assess the prevalence of anxiety and depression among Lebanese women using oral contraceptive pills and investigate the differential impact of combined oral contraceptives (COCs) versus progestogen-only pills (POPs) on mental health outcomes.
