Hi ladies! Any help would be great. My hormones and period ruin my life. They've been bad on and off for 12 years. I've been vegan 11 years. I finally got in to an OBGYN today and spent $500 because I don't have insurance and don't like Western medicine anyway. But I needed to see if there were fibroids. My last period was 7 days of horrible cramping....and the week before was a depressed exhausted bitch fest. So obviously my hormones are completely messed up...of course the doc today wants to put me on the Pill, which I hate the idea of and tried 5 before in years passed due to desperation. I have a bunch of herbal supplements, and am eating 3k calories a day and I work out. I'm just sick of this. From ovulation on I just feel miserable. It's ruining my life and my marriage. Has anyone healed hormonal issues??? I am taking a hormone test next week...(supposed to be on day 21) anyway, thanks for any hope.....ive also somehow gained 20 lbs since February! Wtf? And I'm going to be teaching yoga and barre soon!!! Ugh!
