There Is Hope!

I just got a call from my OB/Gyn office.  I was not able to get in to see him until 9/27.  That seemed like a world away.  Now, though, they have an opening on Friday morning of this week and I am off that day!!!!!  YEAH!!!!!

OK... sorry.  Anywho, I spoke with the receptionist and asked if this doctor believed in perimenopause because I was having such a hard time with my general doctor with this.  She stated that not only did he believe in it, he has been treating women for it for over 13 years and he is the preferred doctor in their office for women with such conditions.  Someone up there was looking out for me again!!!

Yesterday was such a bad day!  I was in such an irate state all day and did everything I could to stay clear of my hyper children by keeping myself busy with housework and laundry.  Every little noise set me off.  At least I was productive about it.  My house has never shined so much!  

Wish me luck, girlfriends!!!

I have the same issues. My hormones are out of whack I know it for a fact, i'm seeing my gyn/ob on thursday and am going to discuss getting on some kind of med to balance my hormones, because I hate the way i feel. Day to day the mood changes, I try and keep myself busy that way my mind doesnt race and cause my anxiety/depression to set in. I feel like i'm exsisting and not living and I dont want to be like this. Did your doctor give you any help?

No help whatsoever. I, though, put it in my own hands and went on progesterone cream to balance progesterone and wild yam extract cream to balance out the testosterone. I am on COQ10 supplement for energy and immunity and garlic for heart and circulation. I take black cohosh for night sweats and hot flashes. I am feeling so much better! Everytime I bring it up to my doctor, she just gives me a weird look, so she is no longer entrusted in my perimenopause care. She takes care of my thyroid and high blood pressure.

Progesterone is great for anxiety and depression. I use FemCare that is a jar cream of 2 oz. It usually comes in a 2 pack and costs between $11 and $15 depending on sales. Each jar lasts a month. It is the cheapest and greatest solution for our issues. Usually when you have a lot of symptoms for mood and such, you are estrogen dominant. This and the wild yam will tone down the estrogen and balance out all three.

Let me know if you need anything! We girls need to stick together.

Thanks so much for the response. I currently found out from my gyn that I have a polpy in my uterus, so I have a d/c scheduled(scared to death) and he told me when they get the results they'll be able to tell what hormones are going haywire on me and hopefully prescribe something. But if he just brushes it off I will definately give the cream a try and the wild yam, because I know im perimenopausal. Thanks again
