Hi there, I am new to this site and have read a few of your posts and have found some awesome information. I was wondering if any of you who are suffering from perimenopause can help me. I am 44 years old and became perimeno around July 2016 (although i didnt know) found out in Sept 2016 that I was perimenopausal. My OBGYN put me on a mild anti depression meds which helped a little the first 6 weeks or so but I couldnt deal with it and didnt want to be on a narcotic med. So in the beginning of Dec he put me on a mild birthcontrol (lolestrin) I am starting my 4th month on BC and the past 3 months really havent been bad at all, a few crying and sadness issues here and there but nothing crazy like I used to have with panic attacks, etc and the BC is def controlling my periods. I also should add real quick that I have been doing accupuncture once a week for the past few months also. I I got a mild period in feb which lasted 5 almost 6 days, during that time I had a few sadness/crying issues but nothing major at all. Once my period ended it was about 3-4 days later that I really started to feel sad and crying alot more than I have been the past few months. The sadness/crying wouldnt last all day it would come and go over the coarse of the day but it wouldnt stop. Then I had one bad afternoon for a few hours where I had mild aniexty, the "crazy" feeling etc and then it went away. Over the next few days I started to feel better, just felt a little tired, and just wanted to do nothing. Here I am 9 days after my period ended and Im finally feelling normal. What I was wondering (and sorry this message is so long) does anyone have more issues/symptoms after your period, and anything you can recommened I can try? I am thinking since the BC is def helping since I am way better now than I was before I started taking "the pill " Maybe a few more months will make a difference? My OBGYN says it can take 2-3 months for the pill to work. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
