    Hormone imbalance PMDD

    A few months ago I doubled up on my birth control. A month after that I, with consultation from my doctor, (not my obgyn) I got off of Budripon (Wellbutrion). In June I had a one day period. In July, I started having anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings. I was once diagnosed with PMDD, so I went to the doctor to discuss this with her.

    She said it was because I got off the Wellbutrion. But from previous issues with my cycle and the label of PMDD, I have kept a log of my cycle. I tried to tell her and she tells me take the Wellbutrion and come back in a month.

    I had a horrible, HORRIBLE month. I had horible panic attacks and I couldn't sleep. The day before my period, I was normal, feeling great. Saturday, I was angry, foot swelling, felt out of it at times. My flow is still off, however.

    I went back to my doctor yesterday. She said oh, so it is hormone related. I asked about PMDD, she said it was possible. She said that I need blood work to test my hormones and thyroid. She thinks I have low or almost no progestogen. She upped my dose of Wellbutrion, which I do not like taking. She said if the levels are off, then she will take me off my yaz and put me on progestogen.

    I'm starting to think I need to go see my Obgyn. Although, this is a new obgyn, that I have seen twice. I wonder if it is PMDD.

    Has anyone had a low level of progestogen? PMDD?
