Do birth control pills help your emotions while your on your period?

Im currently on my period. and terribly depressed and crying one minute, cussing people out and telling them I hate them the next, I don't know what's going on with me, but it seems like every time I'm on my period lately I start acting this way, all I want to do is lay around in bed and I get mad at every little thing. I've heard that birth control pills help on instances like this, is it true? has anyone on birth control noticed a change in their attitude when they are on their period?
