I would suggest do NOT take any hormonal birth control at all for you
and YES the mini pill is a progesterone pill and will cause you to gain weight
PLUS as for protection against pregnancy you can't get any better than the copper IUD
But as for medications to help you with the PMDD - you MIGHT be better off using a medication that increases the Not only the serotonin levels - BUT also the Norepinehrine levels - so you should consider trying Celexa, lexapro or Pristiq that might help you .
Also, you should also make sure your thyroid is normal and the TSH blood test NEEDS to be between 0.5 and 2.5 to be normal.
they are SNRI's - so not SSRI's
Serotonine Norepineprhine reuptake
Print this out....
that way your doctor(s) can see what an ob/gyn has written about this.
because what I have told you is how I would treat you
It is not helping you
it will not help you given what you have said
and using a SNRI should help you
I wish you well
I have to see my own patients now
