I was on birth control for quite some time not only to keep from getting pregnant, but to regulate my periods, lessen PMS symptoms, and to level my hormones. I found that I was up and down emotionally and birth control helped that significantly.
I had blood clots in both lungs recently and now can't take birth control
I've already had one period, lots of cramps, breast tenderness, and weakness because my period was very heavy.
I'm wondering if there's any other way to regulate your hormones? Do any other women take things like biohormones? I don't think I'm in peri or premenopause by any means, so I don't want hormones that I don't need, but I'm interested to see if any other women have been in similar situations, or have any suggestions.
Thanks in advance if you have any input.
