Started Lo Loestrin for peri symptoms
Hi, hoping someone can offer any advice? per bloodwork, I am only in perimenopause and am on day 5 of Lo Loestrin. Has anyone had success feeling better on this bcp and did it take a couple of cycles to really notice. I get these periodic heart palps and adrenaline rushes throughout the day. I'm still taking flaxseed oil and evening primrose to help control, but am really hoping the Lo Loestrin makes a difference. Has anyone done well taking bcp for their peri symptoms?

Thanks

I wish I could give that a try but due to breast tissue changes, I'm not a candidate.  Before having a questionable mammogram, I tried a hormone cream for about a week.  It made me so nauseous, like I was pregnant, that I couldn't take it.  I hope  it helps you with peri symptoms.  It will definitely be good for your bone health!
