Mine was approx 2 years of madness after the Mirena, also, Purp. They might settle soon, with any luck.

My period vanished last November and hasn't been seen since. It was going a bit funny before I had E but seemed to settle down after I had him. We moved house a year ago so I put my missing period down to stress initially. I finally went to the doctor in July and I had blood tests and a MRI. Only issue was B12 was very low so I've had a series of five injections so far but it has made no difference so far to my period. I'm not sure if I can be bothered getting it investigated further and might just see what happens.

What does your doctor think, Jupiter?

Thank you for that link Ella. It’s exactly what I need. My troubles are not with my periods (they’re fine, although my cycle is getting shorter the older I get) but I’m struggling badly with mid cycle doom. It starts immediately after ovulation. It’s so bad this month I’ve actually taken today off as a mental health day as there’s no way I could function professionally.
I had this this month for the first time that I'm aware of and it was ridiculous, like suddenly falling down a well. It was so extreme that it was glaringly obvious it was hormonal, which helped as it couldn't be mistaken for "genuine" emotions, but, bloody hell, the despair (at, for example, my butternut squash puree turning out too loose :ella: ). Also with the shortening cycles. I'm 51 though so have been lucky that it's only just started.
The falling down a well is such a perfect analogy for it. I absolutely know it’s hormonal but god, it’s awful. I feel all numb today but am going into work anyway.

He suspects peri-menapause but wanted to rule out other causes first. I think his next step would be to refer me to a consultant but I'm not sure there is much point.

I suppose if there isn't anything you can/would do about it, there isn't much point. I saw my doctor again today - I don't quite know why as there isn't much point for me either! She pointed out my periods are regular but I've got to do blood tests 6 weeks apart. Her specialist is gynae/menopause which is really helpful.
