Hormones out of whack?!?

I hate this time of the month. I am due for my wonderful monthly visitor tomorrow. How do I know? I've turned into psycho mom again. The day before my period I have a huge hormone swing and I can't seem to handle anything and everything ticks me off. I've been put on birth control to help my hormone swings, which has helped some, but now I may need an adjustment. I don't want to start a new med, because each time I gain weight, but if I don't will I continue to be psycho? Anyone gone through this? Advice? HELP!!

  • Take some me time?? Even on BC I knew when I was going to start, and sometimes my hubby did too. lol. I'd still get crabby, although not every time.
    Take a bath. Light some aroma therapy candles. B vitamins might help. Get outside and get soem fresh air.
    Good luck mama!

  • Talk to your dr. It may be more than PMS, could be PMDD. I have a friend with this. SSRI's can help a great deal. Maybe google it and see if your symptoms match.

  • upping your vitamin B intake can really help ease pms. there are also great herbs out there, go to your local health food store and talk to the herbalist there.
