For all you women with BPD, does your period mess with your BPD symptoms and if it does, how so?

      As someone who isn't a woman but has a period: I don't get them when I'm on my HRT. So im thankful for that. But when I'm off it long enough to get one the week following I'm a complete mess. I become much more sensitive to anything abandonment related. I also cry literally everyday the week or so before.

      Yes, I just got diagnosed with PMDD and I’m having a total hysterectomy because it exacerbates my BPD sooo much. I can’t wait to get it taken out.

        @Cre8iveKrys oh my gosh, I never even heard of that. im glad ur getting the care u need and want, but are there other ways to treat that stuff before it reaches that point? Might help me control myself a bit better

          @Crystal_Rose a lot of times they will prescribe birth control but that didn’t help me and my husband got snipped 15 years ago so I just want it out. I did a mood diary for two months and it was blatantly obvious mine were linked. I didn’t even really know it ever existed until a few months ago.
