How do I manage my PMDD? I was diagnosed and every tune it acts up before my period, I get SO depressed, anxious, angry, lost, in pain... is there anything that helps anyone manage this?? I feel like I'm a lost cause...

      @gi0143 if you get pills make sure you tell them you want continuous cycle. that will completely stop your periods, but they need to know so you get your refills on time.

      If you get the depo shot you have a period every 3 months maybe that would work for you too I have very painful periods and I hate getting my period to the point I’ve wanted to get a hysterectomy because It was terrible to deal with

        @Sunnirie depo shot? I've never heard of it, actually! I'll have to talk to my Dr about this option too

      Have you tried taking oral birth control if you're able?? I used to get super depressed/dissociative and had very painful periods but started on the pill to manage symptoms of another illness a few years ago and those things have since lessened or gone away completely, it was a life saver for sure ;7;

        @Lunarr I was thinking about trying oral birth control, I'll have to talk to my Dr about it - maybe that will help.. thank you!

          @gi0143 For sure! Some of them might stop your period all together or make it so you only have 3 less intense ones a year, be sure to look at all the options
