I get really depressed nearly every month when I have my period. I don't actually get a period, because I have an IUD (Mirena), but I do get a little spotting and a few cramps, all less since getting the Mirena, however the depression and mood problems are the same.
I'm looking for natural treatment options for this. I don't know if it is severe enough to be PMDD, but I have been diagnosed clinically depressed in the past. I generally can keep things under control most of the time, but during my period, life just sucks and the littlest thing can bring me to tears.
Anyways, I don't have insurance, so I'm looking for some other options. I also have PCOS if anyone finds that information relevant. I take a couple different Omega Oil blends, including Fish Oil and Udo's Oil.
I've read that natural progesterone helps, but is this compatible with breastfeeding. My LO nurses very little, but I don't want anything to effect her negatively.
