Yaz and Sarafem
I am 44 years old. I have been going through peri-menopause since I have been 36. I have used vitamins, herbs and progesterone cream to combat the symtoms of anxiety, hot flashes, mood swings, insomnia,anger ect. ect. They have worked quite well up until recently. I am miserable. I have for the past year been feeling quite horrible. I have headaches almost on a daily basis and my other symtoms(mood swings, anxiety, insomnia)have worsened. My doctor has done every test imaginable
to see why I am having daily headaches(MRI, blood tests), he found that I am hypothyroid and started me on Synthyroid several months ago. I feel a little better, but not much. My gyn. checked my FSH,LH and estodial(sorry probably spelled wrong)and said my values were "normal" for a 44 year old women. She said I was probably suffering from PMDD and perscribed me Sarafem and Yaz. I am worried about taking birth control pills at my age. I was wondering if anybodyhas experience with either the Yaz and/or Sarafem,
what are your thoughts and/or comments. Thanks!
