I had gone to the gynaec with complaints of sleepnessness, andxiety in the mornings and mood swings. I was diagnosed (on the basis of USG and blood test) to be perimenopausal. Periods haven't stopped yet. I was prescribed Livial, and it worked like a miracle, reducing the anxiety and rejuvenating me in the first couple of days, and then improving the sleep in the nest week. I loved it, I was almost back to normal!
After that, I got my period and everything went haywire again , with additional flashes of anger and depression. Repeat visit to gynaec, he told me that I was having a particularly bad bout of PMS, and that this can also be related to perimenopausal symptoms. He then changed me over to Yasmin. I am now three days into the new regimen but nothing seems to have changed. Is this too early to expect any change with Yasmin? My experience with Livial was almost immediate (was feeling better after just 2 days). Also, is there any combination of Livial plus Yasmin (or anything similar) that can help me from the menopausal symptoms but also from the PMS symptoms?
