My eldest child is 16, second is four (nursed until I became pregnant with the third child), our third just turned two. I nursed her until three months ago. I had some baby... [Read more...]

Painful Periods, PMS, and Progesterone

I am currently on Prometrium and have been for about a year (give or take). It has been incredible in helping with my physical symptoms. Prior to this drug, I would get menstrual cramps so awful I can’t describe them, but can only really express they were, at least, a 12 on a 1-10 pain factor.... [Read more...]

Increasingly Bad PMS

I have had increasingly bad premenstrual symptoms over the last year. It started with very bad headaches about a week before my periods, which don’t go away until I start bleeding- which usually lasts about five days. I also get a dull pain in my right calf. I have been to my GP who sent me to... [Read more...]

Along with getting... [Read more...]

What Is Wrong With Me?

I am now barely 27, but I quit taking the pill ten months ago because it was obvious that it was... [Read more...]

Trust Your Instincts

I have been diagnosed with Pre Menstrual Disphoric disorder, which is really affecting my life and now starting to affect my marriage as my poor husband has to put up with me being completely irrational and a time bomb for the full week leading up to my periods. We are trying for our second child in... [Read more...]

Progesterone for PMS

Teenager with PMS

Hello! My daughter is 16-years-old. She doesn’t report having problems with her periods. My concern is about her mood swings right before her period is about to start. She is ADHD and takes Concerta just to get her through the school day. She doesn’t take this medication on weekends or all... [Read more...]
