Have been struggling with heavy periods for about 10 years but my mood dipped about a year ago and at times I've been quite depressed. I lose my hair on and off due to low iron linked to my periods. My hair started to get very dry and frizzy last year. I started on a combination of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone about 13 weeks ago. Very few side effects to date but my hormone levels are now too high and I'm having to reduce the dosage. My periods haven't got lighter at all. My mood is improved but not better, and hair has got drier which affects my confidence more as it's never really grown back as thick as it was. I feel mentally exhausted with trying to cope with it all. Any suggestions as to improving things? I guess I could be in a perimenapause state for years yet! Is there life on the other side!
