    Thank you for writing this. I’ve have PMDD and went on birth control to manage the suicidal ideation I’d have about – you said it – ten days before my period. It was hell. I was taking all my bipolar meds but I was experiencing some of the worst depression of my life. I got scared that I’d act on the ideation so I went to my gyno and begged for relief.

    She put me on hormonal birth control and holy hell did my life change (for the better). I could function again, I could live again, and I didn’t have those thoughts anymore.

    For me, I don’t have a lot of physical pain. It’s just a shitton of mental pain and instability. I’m so happy that the birth control worked for me.

  2. Wow. This is extremely informative. I had heard of PMDD before but didn’t know the particulars. Thanks!
