Hi I have really bad problems with my period at the moment. My problems are:
* PMS-like cramps that wake me up at night when they start
* Dark, thick blood throughout the period
* Periods end abruptly and finish a day earlier.
* Periods occur every 21-25 days. It used to be every 27 days.
I was diagnosed hypothyroid in May 2013 but diagnosed with Hashimoto's in January 2014. I take 100mcg of levothyroxine a day but I am still fatigued, constipated and depressed. I follow a healthy diet and lifestyle and my latest blood tests were normal.
My mum was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries some time ago but I have had ultrasounds done in 2005 and 2011 that have shown no problem.
Tests have ruled out endometriosis through ESR and ovarian cancer through CA125.
I have cut out gluten and dairy.
I looked into trying out a Liver Detox herbal tea to help with the PMS and soon after drinking it I felt a bit more energetic. I don't want to jump to conclusions but would the herbal tea have anything to do with that? It contains dandelion, peppermint, licorice and camomile. My period then stopped a day early.
Any help would be appreciated. :)
