Nor-QD or progesterone for pms without getting pregnant??
I had a child at 19 years old, my hormones seemed to balance out for a couple of years but for the last 3 years and especially this last year my pms has been quite severe. I have extreme anxiety that comes before period and during ovulation and my doctors want to put me on meds for it. I have heart palpitations which come on strong after eating, and during my cycle, which causes more anxiety..its a cycle I am trying to break. I went to my Dr. and she prescribed me Nor-Qd a progestin only mini pill... since I do not want to get pregnant and she said this was the easiest way to balance and prevent pregnancy. After researching the pill, I called her and left a message that I would like to try the cream... I haven't heard back yet.. she really was pushing this pill on me... My concern is... what do I do to balance out my hormones but to prevent pregnancy.. is it safe to use this cream as a contraceptive or would that be unhealthy for my body?? I know you have said the Copper IUD is safe but really wanted to know if the cream could and should be used for this purpose. Thanks soo much and your suggestions as to how to get my life and sanity would be great.. as I am only 30 and the Dr. never tested my progesterone but did test my other hormones.. which showed anovulatory cycles sometimes and a vitamin d result of 33. Any help would be great!!!!!
