Fist time writing a post on here but just wandering if anyone can help me! I've was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 9 yrs ago now and have been on 100mg of thyroxine per day. Was also diagnosed with depression 10yrs ago and have been on 300mg of venlefaxine on and off between 3 pregnancies. I am convinced that I have a hormonal imbalance as 2wks of the month I am a mess with depression, fatigue, tearful, acne outbursts but the main problem is that it's breaking down my relationships as on these 2 wks I can't communicate with my partner at all, don't want him near me and quite honestly wander if I like him anymore. I've been like this for years with a couple of partners and can't cope anymore as its ruining every relationship. Over the last 6 months I've been slowly coming off my anti depressants as I truly believe it's my hormones and thyroid that are my problem. I've also come off my contraception as that seems to effect me also. But I'm having the worst 2 wks in my cycle ever at the moment and now at a loss of what to do next. Should I go back on my anti depressants? My doctors useless and just says my thyroid results are fine and there's nothing else I can do. Sorry for the long message but I really need help and don't know where to turn so any advice will be much appreciated. Thank you
