Imbalanced mess since Depro Provera
I am 49 years old, have suffered from Severe PMS all of my adult life. Had started using natural Progesterone cream 14 days on about 2 1/2 years ago. It did help.
About 18 months ago I started experiencing very painful ovulations, having to use pain killers for 7 up to days a month. At last OB/GYN visit, Dr suggested Depro Provera to stop ovulation process, thus no pain. She also said it would take care of PMS symptoms. Thought it sounded like a good idea.
I had my first injection on August 5th. Have gone downhill ever since. I have been stuck in PMS since about 1 week after shot. I am mean, moody, impatient and miserable. Not myself. Feelings of desperation had me calling a psych nurse at the local hospital and she is suggesting a psychiatrist. I KNOW my hormones are out of whack!
Needless to say, I stopped the progesterone cream when I had the shot, will it help to start again? I don't know when I would start it since I don't have a cycle to speak of. I will not take antidepressants.
Is Depro synthetic? Why am I going thru this and how can I get my life back?
