I'm sorry if this question is in the wrong place, but I couldn't find anywhere else to post it.
I am Rachel, I am almost 46 years old.
For the last 5 years, I seem to have become a different person.
At 40, I began bleeding and didn't stop for months. The doctor sent me for scans which found fibroids, and about three months later, I had an op to remove them.
When I came round, I was told no fibroids were found, and that they'd fitted a Mirena coil.
I had no periods at all after that, but I gained lots of weight very quickly (4 stone!), I became angry, anxious, depressed and just emotionally very unstable. Mt face would swell up, my eyes became extremely sensitive, I couldn't sleep, I felt old and horrible, and I wanted to rant all the time, and I had absolutely no libido.
I have, at 45, had the Mirena removed and since, my periods are sporadic. I can go three to four months without one, or i'll have a day of bleeding before it stops abrubtly. I feel wound up and upset most of the time. I'm either void of any energy, or slightly manic and angry. It's totally exhausting!
I've purchased two tubes of Natpro, but I just don't know when I should begin using it, or if i should at all. I take a good Vitamin D supplement every day. My weight is still about 4 tone more than I'm comfortable with, too.
Can you please advise me?
