Re: Perimenopause-PLEASE HELP!! Can't deal with the irratibilty
Welcome to the board, sorry you're not feeling well. Peri/meno can be really a tough ride for some of us.
Has the doc rechecked your hormones yet since starting the pill? Maybe your still not hormonally balanced. I am not quite sure how long it takes for the pills to kick in, but I think that a month would be a long enough time.
Some of the gals on the board have taken mild anxiety meds to help through this transition in our lives, perhaps it may be an option for you to discuss with your doctor.
I know the mood swings can be really hard to handle, I have problems with it myself. Just try to take a deep breath and count to 10 before you respond. Sometimes I have to just walk away before I even open my mouth. I can be happy one minute and then ready to cry the next. All I have to do is give my family "the look" and everyone starts a running!!
I hope you keen on posting here. Alot of us women are going through the exact same things and we're always here to listen!
Hang in there,
