Birth control filter : BC linked to risky/daring behavior?

I have only taken birth control (Safyral) for almost about a year now. During that time, I have been super aggressive, mean spirited, and to the point where I couldn't even stand myself. I've stopped taking it for this past month and I feel happier and much more relaxed. I can actually let things slide instead of getting hung up and pissed off with every little thing.
So my questions :
- YANMD but it's the BC causing this right? I mean I have no other explanation. But BC are hormones and hormones cause shifts in moods right?
- So I've made a lot of really bad decisions things I feel are totally against my nature (ie.. cheating, lying, manipulation). I know I ultimately made the decisions but could BC have played a part in it. I'm not looking to place blame on something as I have to live with my guilt but from a scientific/psychological standpoint is it possible BC caused me to make bad/risky/daring decisions that I normally would never make?
(okay the guilt is killing me.. and it would be nice to know that it isn't just me)
- I RARELY ever take medication, this BC was really the first medication I've actually taken regularly. Pills and such scare me. It scares me the effects it could have on me, so could all this just be in my head?
