In need of help
I am 39yrs old. I had my second child 22mths ago. I breast fed so i did not get my first period till 5mths ago. 2 weeks after my period i suddenly became extremely stressed and then deeply depressed. I could find no reason for it. I suddenly had extreme hypoglycaemia, depression, anxiety, phobias and no one could work out what was wrong with me. I was still breast feeding my son all this time. I lost a huge amount of weight also. 2 months after it started i had to start antidepressants as i was crippled by this situation. Still no one could figure out what was wrong. At this time i was forced to stop feeding my son as i didn't want the antidepressants to affect him. The antidepressants only helped 50%. I continued to cry each day feeling hopeless. My period did not return again after the first one (5mths ago) for 4 more months (last month).
I am still crying each day and was told casually in passing conversation that my progesterone levels seemed a bit low but he did not say to do anything about it????? Im so confused. My period is supposed to be due tomorrow (if it comes again) and the depression has increased the last few days.
Can you tell me if this could all be caused by low progesterone and what should i do about it?
I also remember being told that my cortisone levels were elevated.
But no one has put anything together. I have just been doing the hypoglycaemia diet/taking vitamins and antidepressants.
Would love your opinion please.
