I turned forty this year and I need hormones!! This year I haven’t had any added hormones (I haven’t had a period for 2.5 years). Last year I was on bio identical hormones and they really helped but I had to stop taking them because it sent my hormones level a bit haywire after 8 months. My body started to fight back! I am still producing low levels of estrogen but have high FSH so defo menopausal.
The consultant gave me the presciption for the oral contraceptive pill back at the beginning of october. For nearly two months I have avoided taking it as i really didn’t want synthetic hormones in my body. After more rollercoaster moods, feeling very low and overwhelmed with life, hot flushes I have realised that I need help! No amount of healthy eating or supplements is going to help me. I am still young and need hormones for a least another five years.
It’s just another type of hormones therapy and I hope it helps!! I want to old me back!
So I have been taking the pill for 5 days now :0) I’m going to blog about what does/doesn’t happen to me and my body.
It feels very weird taking the pill again. The last time I took it was before my son (who is 12) was born.
