I am having a really rough time of it right now. I'm still in peri and have somewhat regular periods. (right now, actually)
The problem is: It seems each month the bloating, cramping, clotting and heavy bleeding is getting worse. And the mood swings/anxiety are horrid!
I've been seeing a psychiatrist for anxiety for about 6 months and it really does help, but last night I went ballistic on my poor hubby over something that in the cold light of day seems pretty trivial. I knew I was just raging at the poor guy, but I couldn't stop myself.
This is not me....I'm usually the one who remains calm in a crisis, etc. The last time I felt this way was years ago, when my GYN put me on progesterone for a condition I have (PCOS) It made me so nasty and emotional that I stopped taking it after about 5 days.
I'm not as knowledgeable about hormones as many of you ladies, and my question is...can you produce higher or hightened levels of progesterone during peri/meno?
I apologized profusely to my hubby this a.m. and he was a sweetheart about it, but he is such a supportive husband and I know that can be rare, and the thought of doing this to him again just scares me out of my wits!
I have called my GYN's and made an appointment, but as usual, can't see him for 3 weeks. I was hoping you girls would have some answers/solutions in the meantime. Thank you in advance.......cmpgirl
