Angry Please, I am so lost... BC which one?

mad:Hi all,

I am 46 soon to be 47 and have a history of depression, anxiety, PMS, endro, IBS-C, and need your ladies advise. Yes, I do think I am going through Permi.

But I am always freezing, tired, night sweating, irritable, and low self esteem, and used to be so outgoing.

My thyroid came back in normal ranges, vitamines in normal range "Except"" B12, was actually high=1500. Then why the heck am I so tired, etc????????

My Estradiol is 272. A year ago it was <20
My Estrogens total was 439.0
Estrone was 167.00

Is these in the normal range? I was told I could try BC to help with the permi. I don't know what one to choose. I know everyone is different, but don't want to gain, lose hair, acne, etc. Any suggestions would be great!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did have surgery five years ago to have fibroids removed, that is when they decided I had endro. I think my fibroids have came back and so does my OB, but not ready for a full blow surgery.

Please ladies, help.
God bless.

PS. I am also on a low Antidepressant Wellburtin that I just got but have not started. I am just a mess.

Re: Please.......I am so lost........BC which one?

Just ask your gyno for a regular bcp that he/she normally prescribes. Take it for one month. You won't gain weight, lose hair or get acne in one month's time. If it doesn't help at all in one month, stop taking it. Or if it does help, keep taking it unless you have some side effect you don't like. Then quit. You don't have to wean off bcp. You can just stop any time.
