If anyone could give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it.
I had severe post natal anxiety and depression 10 days after giving birth. Fast forward 4 years I have been on anti depressants and keep having 'relapses' so my anti depressants have been added to and added to so now I am on 2 of the maximum dosages which is very scary for me.
My relapses used to happen every 2-3 months 10 days before my period was due they get so bad I can't sleep, eat, leave the house, and I have suicidal thoughts.
I have been to see a psychiatrist as my GP didn't know what to do with me and they agreed it is hormonal.
I am 7 days before my period and in the middle of a relapse and have had to increase anti depressants again.
My GP has also just given me a prescription for cerazette mini pill that he wants me to take when my period finishes and I am feeling normal again. The idea is to stop my period completely so I don't get the hormonal fluctuations.
This sounds like it could be a miracle for me IF it works however I have tried microgynon which sent me so bad I wanted to hospitalise myself and also loestrin which did the same so I am PETRIFIED to try this pill.
Does anyone else have severe PMS and has this pill helped you or made you worse? Trying to understand my hormones is so difficult I don't know which one I need and I don't need.
I am terrified that if I take this pill and it makes me worse I am not in a position to increase my anti depressants.
Advice pleaseeeee xx
