Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum. I am sorry you are going through this bad time and I feel you are on the right track by talking with your therapist.
Also if you felt better on the BC you may want to see your GYN physician and talk about your sx.
Anxiety is one of the most common symptoms of Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), post-childbirth, and perimenopause (the period of time before the onset of menopause). It may take the form of panic attacks, nervousness, sweating, intense fear, anxiety combined with depression, or other overwhelming symptoms.
Hormones may play a huge role in anxiety for many women so please do follow up with your Doctor.
Again a warm welcome to you.
