Hi All, looking for some advice please!!
These last few months my mood is significantly worse in the week prior to my period (which has become much shorter over the last year or so). When I say worse, I mean in comparison to how it used to be. I used to just get a bit grouchy in the 1 or 2 days immediately before and once I started I would be fine. Now it's a whole week before and I feel anxious, depressed, irritable..just really not nice to be around. My period is quite heavy but only for about 24 hours then it is 'barely there' for about 5 days. (it used to be very heavy for a couple of days and then gradually get lighter over the week) I'm not on any kind of birth control, I came off the pill aged 22 as it caused too many issues so have only used condoms since. I am 39 years old.
Could there be an obvious reason for that? I have to say that just recently mood and energy wise, I have really declined again and beginning to feel that it is all just too bloody complicated and I'll never get back to how I used to be. I can't afford to be testing as often as I think I probably should, especially as I am now up to 4 1/2 grains of Nature-throid (and probably still not on enough) which is also getting expensive.
Just when I eliminate one symptom another will resurface and it's just so frustrating
Thanks in advance
