Hey partakati, I am not too familiar with the SHGB, but if possible, do you think you can let go of the pill? However, if you are taking it for hair loss, you may want to hold off until you get used to this lifestyle for a bit.

Also, Alison Andrews, a fellow raw vegan, spoke about hormone balance and talked about hormone regulation and progesterone cream on her site. You may want to check that out, as it may be an option whilst you transition. This may serve other ladies on here as well. I an going to put this up on the "Helpful Information" tab for everyone to see as well <3

I used to have these herbs when I let go of the contraceptive pill pretty much cold turkey. I took these for 2-3 years. These were very helpful in having a period, but it numbed me in other areas of my life. I had a foggy brain and slight constipation, along with thicker facial hair. I also had HORRIBLE PMS (not sure if it was because of the high-fat at the time, or if because I have estrogen issues in general). But like I said, it did however, give me a period. My sex drive shot through the roof, too. (Please ignore the fish oil and non-vegan things on that site. I am positive that these herbs are vegan, although you may want to check.) I would recommend this option only if you are very much desperate and have tried lowering your hormones with fruits and veggies (which, honestly, has worked best for me!) This only controls symptoms for a bit, until you are able to manage. And that is what it did for me. I grew tired of it after a while, feeling almost guilty in a way, which is why I am here now :)

It takes a while to balance out, ladies. Like to truly balance out. Not just relieve symptoms. Again, this has been my experience.

Remember to check your B12, D3, and elements to see if you have any deficiencies! Try to get early nights, too, as adrenal exhaustion has a lot to do with hormones. I am still working on that ;)

Comment by partakati on May 30, 2012 at 6:54pm

I'd have a hormone related question, I just got my blood test results back and my sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) is super elevated, with 280 nmol/l when it should be somewhere between 20-140 nmol/l in women my age. I am guessing this is due to the crazy contraceptive pills I'm taking, and if I don't want deep-vein trombosis anytime soon I should probably change to something else.

Does anyone know any supplements I could take for lowering SHBG? I was reading about stinging nettle root extract that some people have used, but I'm just wondering (not an expert at all when it comes to biochemistry and that) if I lower SHBG then would I have MORE free testosterone and that would be bad for my existing hair-loss problems? I have also been taking DIM but apparently that is not good because it might screw up the estrogen/testosterone balance even more. If there's anyone who's educated about hormones, I would be very thankful for any advice! Have a great day!

Welcome, Shery :)

Comment by Janneke on May 27, 2012 at 6:47am

That might also be the case, Good point :)

Comment by L on May 27, 2012 at 5:11am

Didn't she delete her profile? That could also be the cause of the removal. I am not saying that the post didn't get removed but it may have disappeared along with her profile.

Comment by Janneke on May 27, 2012 at 3:31am

Her post got removed, which I already expected would happen, since it wasn't in agreement with 30BAD. That's why I saved the email, just incase. If you don't have it anymore, let me know.

So happy I found this group, and all the info linked to! Hey guys :)

Comment by partakati on May 9, 2012 at 8:35pm

Hey everyone, I am new to 30BaD and I actually joined this website to be able to join this group. I've been diagnosed with PCOS from ultrasound with 12 cysts instead of the normal 4-5 and also from blood work. The condition arose when I tried to quit my birth control pills January 2011, wanting to be more natural and get rid of the mood swings pills cause. After quitting I was feeling great, but a couple of months later I started to notice that my hair had gotten half thinner and my face begun to fill up with acne (I was put on birth control when I was 16 due to acne. Now thinking, I had all the signs of PCOS back then, excess facial hair, thinning hair, acne, sudden weight gain but of course doctors think all girls should be put on birth control without actually diagnosing them..)

 

I saw a gynecologist who diagnosed me and said I need to go back on birth control, so I did. Hair stopped falling out and my face cleared up, but I really do not want to be on birth control anymore. However, I'm way too scared to stop because I already have scalp showing through my hair if I don't blow dry and use products, which is devastating for me. About 3 months ago I made an appointment with a woman who is specialized in womens hair loss and alopecia, and she sold me a bunch of expensive products to help re-grow my hair. I've been using them and I can see some new growth but I don't know whether it is due to the products, birth control or something else.

 

Well anyways, sorry for the long post, I just thought to share my story and maybe someone has similar experiences or helpful advice! I am glad to hear that people on this group are having their periods without the help of medication, it gives me a lot of hope!
