Has anyone out there experienced heightened PMS whilst on either the Mirena or Northisterone? I have a personal history of reacting in this way to hormone treatment but this time it seems even worse. My cycles are between 6-8 weeks and I notice an increase in pms between weeks 3 and 4. It fluctuates over the remaining weeks along with my weight and pain levels
I've been on the coil for c18months for Endo (and its really helped) and I'm on Northisterone for Adeno (which again has really helped). My bleeding is completely under control and the pain is to a level I can cope with most of the time. As time is going by though my emotions are all over the place. I can be perfectly fine then out of no where I’ll want to burst into tears, I don’t get angry or frustrated I’m just down, so down that I cry for no reason.
I’ve had a lovely bank holiday with my other half but Friday night I got home from work and just wanted to be alone, instead I cried. Last night I went to bed and when saying goodnight to the dog I started crying, I thought I’d managed to get it out my system but when my other half asked how I was I burst into more tears. This morning on my way to work I had some serious road rage, to the point I was physically shaking by the time I got in. I’ve made an appointment with my GP although I know they’ll say I need to go back to my consultant.
I’m in a no win situation. If I come off the coil and northisterone I dread to think what my symptoms will be like when they return but I can’t continue like this either. My other half is wonderful, he comforts me and stays by my side until I feel better but its not fair on him.
I’m thinking of going back to Vit B6 and Agnus Castus to help the pms but its SO expensive!
Have you ladies experienced this with either treatment? Either way, what would you recommend?
Thank you for listening
