What hormones do I need?
I always had PMT when I was younger & then after my second child had PND. I started Perimenopause in February 2010 with irregular periods but no other symptoms & thought great until October 2010 when started with extreme panic, irritability & depression. Went to doctors & was given oestrogen & progesterone in pill form. When I started the progesterone pill it made me much worse. I went to another doctor & he gave me oestrogel & utrogeston, which is meant to be a milder progesterone. Same thing as before the utrogeston made me feel even worse. I had a full hysterectomy in May 2011 & thought great now only need to take oestrogen but for the last 7 years I still have not found balance. I have tried all different oestrogens & I am now back on .5 oestrogen patch. I might have a couple of weeks feeling ok & then stress or something else hits me & it all goes downhill again.
I am very confused as to what my body wants & needs. If I have had such a bad reaction to progesterone in the past then can my body really need it.?
Love to know what others think. Have a feeling that with all these awful symptoms my body is trying to tell me something but haven't a clue what.
