I found this because I have been going crazy trying to figure out some things, trying to find a light at the end of the tunnel I guess.(I know this post was from a while ago) Ive had the iud for almost 4 years now I had it out in a few months after I had my son. I’ve been diagnosed with adhd and mood liability for about 5 years along with tbi witch made things much worse for me. When I was pregnant I was in a way better place emotionally I felt better happier and I’m starting to think it’s because my increased estrogen levels. I’ve always been sensitive to things meds food ect. But now I would say I have a grip on myself lol for the most part. I’m starting to feel that maybe my estrogen levels are low and my meds are not as affective as they could be. I have brought it up to my doctorate but they both say it’s such a low amount of progesterone it shouldn’t have an affect I just feel this is not true. Around the time of ovulation? Becaubecause I dont have my period or whatever… I am extremely extremely moody elevated up and down emotional you name it. But these are the times that put me in a bad place. Has anyone leaned anymore information on this subject? Sorry for my rant hahha my brain is going to explode right now 😐
