hell week has started for me today!! I was only diagnosed with pmdd last month, after telling my therapist about the mood swings and inability to get myself out of intrusive thought patterns. I have to get hormone testing done and have started oral birth control, but I don’t think this birth control is quite right for me. are there any forms of birth control that helped anyone out with the emotional side of pmdd? I can’t take ssri’s so I feel like a different birth control is my only hope :/

      I wish I knew almost every birth control I've tried has given me unmanageable side effects.
