Seems like every month my period turns me into a crazy person. I can’t manage my emotions, anxiety and depression go to the extreme. Then once I get my period I’m back to normal. I’ve tried birth control, antidepressants, exercise, healthy eating, talk therapy, and so much more with little to no relief. Is anyone else going through this or have found relief? I really need help…

      I meditate, the app called Balance has been helpful for me and the first year is free. Prioritize yourself. I've learned alot of my symptoms are my body trying to talk to me. It tells me to slow down, I'm dehydrated, my sugar is too low, I've eaten too much junk food, etc. Birth control screwed my body up worse (that's me personally, some people swear by it). I know I feel like strangling the next dr that suggests lifestyle changes, but sometimes taking intake on yourself and your body's needs is necessary. And failing all that, I smoke some killer cannabis. Meditating with cannabis is the best (for me). I'm here if you'd like to chat. Sometimes just venting to someone who gets it and validates our experiences is healing.

      I've been there too. I talked with another OB-GYN doc at my regular OBGYN doctor office and she recommended I could try (progesterone only) Nexplanon birth control for PMDD symptoms... Which are the premenstrual symptoms that made me feel wild and crazy-like. I think so far it is starting to help with all of that. I hope this message helps you get an idea of what might be an option. I hope you get the right assistance for your symptoms hun. 💗

      Sounds like PMDD. There are approved birth controls specific for that but I find what helps me most is weed…

      same! I’m at the point where I am considering a hysterectomy just to put a stop to it. I feel like I have tried everything from exercise to birth control to supplements to antidepressants and nothing helps.

        @Egilsdottir it’s so hard but we can’t give up or do anything drastic… hopefully there is something that will help us ❤️ 😥
