Monthly Anger and Mood swings

Hi All,

I am a 32 year old who lives in Surrey UK, and since being a teenager I have suffered with my Hormones. It started when I was 15, migraine headaches dizziness so bad I would be sick and very painful periods. Since then I had Polycystic Ovarian Cysts which causes my periods to stop, until my mum researched the Natpro cream and recommended I try it.

Well I did, and even though the Doctor had put me on Metformin a Diabetic medication to control PCOS I am a true believer that Natro had cured me, as a scan at hospital revealed no more cysts!!!

My reason to write this time is I have been very lucky to go on and have a lovely daughter who is now 2 years old, but I am really struggling with heavy periods but most importantly anger and mood swings so bad, I am scared some times as I feel so angry and I know this is hormonal, I feel it every month just before my period starts.

I am a bit concerned as it affects my partner also, me screaming at him in rage. I am using Natpro but I only use it when I feel symptoms and I know I am probably not using this correctly please can you help me?????

I am off to walk in the sun today for a bit of Vitamin D as after I had my daughter my Vitamin D Level was so low...
So going to get some Vit D supplements. I would be so grateful for your help as I am ready to go to the doctor who I think will just send me away with antidepressants...

Thank you so much

Hi Janine,

I am a 41 year old and am going through the same thing. My son is 2 1/2 years old and I have been suffering from the anger, moodiness, and very emotional for the 2 1/2 years. Yes the doctors have put me on 3 different antidepressants in the past 2 1/2 years. They have all affected my breathing. I would say dont do the antidepressants, in my experience. Its very frustrating as traditional doctors want to put you on medication immediately. It has affected my marriage so much. I do take progesterone every day, but not sure if it helps during that 2 week to 1 week time frame before period. If you find a solution please let me know as I suffer as well. Its hard for others to understand the severity of this and how it affects our daily lives. Nice to know I am not the only one. I want relief as well.

Hi Janine I'm delighted the Natpro helped you. Progesterone can reverse Ovarian Cysts, it certainly helps with PCOS too. Progesterone is always low, but you do need high dose antioxidants too. PCOS is caused by oxidative stress. I'm amazed you went on to have a daughter with just the progesterone, lovely news! I'm pleased too you've been reading on the importance of Vitamin D. If your level is low, then your daughter's will be, please start giving her vitamin D too, if you're not already. If she's under 25 pounds she needs 1,000iu/day or 25-50 pounds: 2,000 IU/day. This is a helpful page from Dr Cannell's site, see here. You're not using the Natpro correctly, it really should be used before any symptoms start! Best if you follow your cycle too. There's more info on our page on How to use progesterone cream. The Menstruation page will help too, as it gives info on a protocol to take for heavy bleeding. And please contact Jules in London via her website here. She knows as much about progesterone and vitamin D as I do, she also carries stock of both. Progesterone can help the Anger, you are right hormones can be a cause of this. It's most important to use it regularly though, and you might need to increase it slightly the few days prior to your period. This is when oestrogen becomes the dominant hormone, as progesterone levels are dropping. Let me know how you get on. Take care Wray

Hi TG It sounds as if you have post natal depression, it could be Janine does too. Although I was concentrating more on her overall imbalance of hormones, as it seems her troubles started before having a child. But yours can be attributed directly to the birth, progesterone levels drop sharply after it. Sending 25% of women into some sort of depression, from the baby blues to post natal psychosis, luckily very rare. Antidepressants are not the answer, but progesterone and some nutrients are, to replace those lost, see here. And our page on Pregnancy. It sounds as if you’re to using enough progesterone, and if you take it it’s not effective, as oral progesterone is the least effective Delivery system, "The liver and gut region removed a mean of 96 per cent of the progesterone entering these tissues", see here. It’s far better to use a progesterone cream. Levels of progesterone increase well, see our page on Saliva Tests. Dr Dalton would use up to 2400mg/day for her patients with post natal psychosis, about 800mg/day if it was PND. Consider a cream and use a high amount. Plus a few nutrients too, all listed on our Anxiety page. Take are Wray
