Hi - I have come to the conclusion that ovulation seems to be an issue for me, as times in my life when I wasn't ovulating, i.e. when I was pregnant and breast feeding were the only times in recent years where I didn't expereince this horrible emotional roller coaster each month. I literally have 1 good week post period, a bad week mid cycle, another bad week pre period and then relief during my period - and it has just been getting more intense in the past 18 months. I've tried antidepressants - which I think help me on my good weeks - because I feel great, but don't seem to be able to prevent the down weeks, am now I'm also on bio identiical oestrogen gel, which worked great initially - for the first 5 months but I think my cycle has now synced to the increased oestrogen levels which is why it appears to have stopped working. I had assumed that the oestrogen gel would have stopped ovulation as it's at quite a high does (3 pumps per day) but I now read that this is not necessaril the case, ( I still have symptoms of ovulation) as it is no where near as high as the OC pill. So I think the pill might be the best option for me as it would completely override my cycle and stop ovulation - as I've read it can help some women. I would really like to hear if it has helped anyone else and which pill worked best! Thanks.
