I've been going through hormone ***l for almost 20 years. As soon as I started my period at age 12, I grew a beard. I would go months even years without menstruating until my mid 20's. I began to notice other things like esophageal spasms, irrational mood swings, weight gain, weight loss. I somehow was able to become pregnant and gave birth to 2 beautiful children. After my second child, I had a tubal ligation. My periods seemed more normal but then became increasingly uncomfortable. For the last 2 years my PMS has become out of control. It is painful and lasts for about 3 weeks. I have had to take anti-depressants in the past but, I noticed the only time I had to take them was when I was taking birth control pills. I have had numerous tests run. Last year I had one doctor inform me I had low progesterone. He prescribed birth control pills. I went nuts. Most recent blood hormone tests reveal everything is fine hormonally....What should I do?
