New here but so glad I found this site.
I am 45 and have been in perimenopause for about 3-4 years. Out of those years I have had one good year. The rest has been pure hell. My emotions have been out of control. Had my hormones check 2 years ago and they where in the normal range but on the low side. Tried BC for about a year they helped with the irregular periods and a little with the emotions but I didn't physical feel good on them. Not sure if my symptoms are from perimenopause or Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) or I'm just going crazy.
I am strongly considering a Hysterectomy to hopefully calm things down but not sure. I am not a fan of anti-depressants. I am so lost on what to do.
