pms? pmdd? someone help please! Watch
I used to think this was normal, but having spoken to friends about it it has become apparent that none of them experience these symptoms to the extent I do.
I did see my gp about it but they weren't much help. they focused on the physical pain I get instead of the emotional and mental issues (which can often be worse than the cramps).
I now don't really know who to turn to. I also don't know if i'm what I'm experiencing is pmdd or not. I am also confused because all the research i've done says that pms and pmdd affects you the week before your period, and my symptoms are during.
It really does affect my life, as it leaves me with no motivation and general self-hatred.
If anyone has any idea what this is/how I can deal with it it would be greatly appreciated x
I used to be like that (although yours sounds a little more extreme). I went on the pill just over a year ago, and it's improved my symptoms a lot.
Would the possibility of contraception be something you would consider?
