Sometimes it takes a while to get responses to a post as we all have jobs and families or other things so we are not always around to repsond or may not now what to repsond but sooner or later someone usually responds. Also turn off your caps as that is the internet equivalent of shouting at the top of your lungs.

Open, I have had problems with my hormones for many years without knowing what was wrong. I'm not sure what info you are looking for, but I will give you a little history. Everything I am about to discuss is related to elevated progesterone. Hormonal imbalances can cause numerous side effects in some while others seem to never experience any problems.

I have had 3 ectopics. I have severe panic disorder with anxiety and occasional depression. I have severe PMS symptoms starting 1 wk before my cycle and lasting until my cycle is over. I'm always so tired half the time I don't feel like I can get out of bed. I have no energy. I get migraines upon the slightest motivation. I feel weak a lot of times. I have a poor appetite. I have trouble sleeping. The list goes on and on. Like I said I have elevated progesterone levels. They put me on BCP to try to regulate my levels. For the most part it works, but I still occassionally feel these symptoms coming back on. If you think you have a hormonal imbalance have your doctor check it out. Also have your thyroids checked, as they cause many of the same symptoms. I haven't been able to have any other lab work done because I am still waiting for them to assign me a PCP at the VA, which seems to be taking forever. If there is anything else you would like to know or discuss please don't hesitate. I will be here! Please take care!

Without knowing more of your history, it's kind of difficult to give advice. My hormones were out of sync for whatever reason and my menstrual cycle was messed up BIG time. My doctor and specialists were of no help and the best they could do was put me on birth control.

I decided to investigate acupuncture and this has helped me so much and my acupuncturist is much more knowledgable than my normal doctor. I'm glad there are more solutions than being stuck on BC pills for the rest of my menstrual life and having to cope with all the side effects they gave me.
