moody & tired
Fri, 08-17-2012 - 10:48pm
I'm 38 years old and had my kids at a real young age. I've seen Dr's recently and have alot of ovarian cysts and big fibroids on my uterus. My periods are coming every 10-15 days and 2 days before each one I get real grouchy and tired. The Dr's wont do a hysterectomy and wont order hormones due to my heart condition. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get energy & a better attitude?

Hi and welcome to the board. (by the way, I know I tried to respond to you before.. wondering if that was when my computer had to be rebooted... <sigh>) The the Dr's won't do a hysterectomy, have they suggested any other treatment? d&c?

For dealing with the moods and energy, there are some things that we have found that work for some women, but before trying them I would suggest talking to your pharmacist or dr to be sure they won't interfere with any meds or your condition. 

If you go to the Menopause Oasis, There is a page on 'natural' remedies. You might find something there that would help you. Again, I would recomend checking first to be sure it is safe for you.

Please post anytime. And remember... you are NOT alone!
