PMDD and contraception


I have PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder). Would contraception help with the symptoms?


Hi @asdfgh
It might do. Any method that stops you ovulating like the combined pill, the patch, the ring, the injection - will stop you going through the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle. This may help your PMDD.

On the combined pill - you can choose not to bleed at all - see the post on new ways to take the pill.

If you want more information on how the pill works and how it stops your menstrual cycle then just let me know.

If you decide to try one of these methods do post how you get on.
