I went to my yearly gyno check-up last week - Happy Happy, Joy Joy
While there, I happened to mention that I get really sad for no reason only a couple of days each month and then - BOOM - it goes away and I am my old cheery self again. They took blood samples to check my hormone level to see if my remaining ovary was working all right (I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago but they left one ovary so I wouldn’t have to do the hormone thing.)
He just called today and said that everything looked fine and that I was probably suffering from PMS. WHAT? I NEVER had PMS before and the sad mood swings just started about 6 or 7 months ago. But whatever. . . . Maybe it’s my :::gasp::: . . . . . age.
He suggested that I either go on birth control pills to prevent my ovary from releasing hormonal changes or go on the anti-depressant Paxil.
Before I decide which one I am going to start taking, if any, I would love to hear about experiences any of you may have with the drug Paxil. I have never even considered taking anti-depressants, so I haven’t really looked into them.
I do have clients who are on the drug, although I do not follow their medication history. I have noticed that this drug is important in their every day functioning. However, I will only be using it to control depression for 2 or 3 days each month during my PMS :::::: cycle.
So, from your experience, birth control pills, Paxil, or nothing? I am leaning toward not taking anything, but I would like to hear the experience of those who have tried it.
Seven days of sex makes a whole week.
