Heavy painfull periods
by Judy P
I'm 47, I started using the pill at 16 because my periods were so eratic, I then found out at the age of 26 that I had lots and lots of tiny cysts on my ovaries which was making it difficult to conceive.
I have since had 3 children but finally came off the pill 5 years ago. Ever since my periods have been regular to the day but are getting heavier and more and more painfull, to the point where I don't want to leave the house but of course, I keep going. My hips, back and legs are really painfull, I have headaches and feel really cold and tired the day before I come on. At least 10 days before I come on I start getting really emotional, tearful, angry and generally awful to live with, as I seem to make just an ordinary crisis into a major drama and the end of the world is nigh!!
Recently a friend has told me about natural progesteron after my docotor recomended having a coil fitted that would regulary release progesterone in small amounts. Another friend has had the same coil fitted but dosen't find it of any help at all. Do you think that natural progesterone would work for me? I did your questionaire and my score was very high! Thanks.
