The vitex, diet, exercise ect, has helped a lot these past few months. The naturopathic remedies are really effective for me and I haven't fallen for a while now so fingers crossed this is the start of having really good control over it.
I'm really glad I've found a few others who have pmdd..... and that I'm not alone in my completely irrational behaviour.
Yes I agree, safety in numbers 😜 we just can't all cycle together, good lord can you imagine?!
Once Upon a Time (30-10-2015)
So my period arrived 2 days ago and I'm not really feeling much relief. Still feeling really hormonal, sweats, overwhelmed, teary and very irritable. This dr appt can not come soo enough!!!! Still 6 days away 😁😧😥
I take Vitex and b6. I just wanted to say, stick with it and give it some time to work. I found that it takes a few months for the Vitex to have marked difference on my crankiness and extreme irritability. the irrationality of my emotional response those few days before af arriving was completely nuts. I was frightening my children, and myself.
I've been back taking vitex and b6 for about 6 months now. And I'm much better for it. I've also found that all my mid cycle spotting has gone completely. My cycle is also much more regular.
I love vitex, but I'll also agree with a pp about it making you more fertile. Dd2 is a vitex baby. After 9 months of actively ttc (and 15 months of doing nothing to prevent pregnancy) she was conceived first cycle of vitex.
