Don't self-diagnose: It may be a mistake to try to self-diagnose. What is good is that you are reflecting on qualities you are not pleased with and considering ways that you might challenge them. It takes courage to do this. But try not to think that you have to do it alone. You can search for a professional that you feel you can trust who will keep you from being too hard on yourself and provide real help with this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I often get mood swings going from happiness to sadness but i never get hypo unless i'm drunk. Is there a reason for this?
Alcohol Disinhibits: I am assuming when you say "hypo" that you might mean hypomanic. If so, a possible explanation for having only this more extreme energized mood when you are intoxicated is that alcohol is disinhibiting and shuts down parts of the pre-frontal cortex that control behavior. And, hypomania does the same thing by a different mechanism so the state of being intoxicated facilitates being hypomanic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unclear: PMDD is not usually confused with Bipolar II. If you are breastfeeding and not having periods then it is not PMDD. PMDD is very specific in its relationship to the menstrual cycle. I would schedule a visit with your primary care doctor or psychiatrist and ask for an evaluation. Post partum depression and bipolar screening can be done to help you sort this out. ...Read more

On Oct 17th I had a mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted, still bleeding and cramping. Mood swings are diabolical. Help, should I get it removed?
Mirena (levonorgestrel): Irregular bleeding is common in the first 3-6 weeks after insertion. The locally acting Progesterone begins to thin out the endometrial lining which is what ultimately leads to the absent or light periods. Mood swings are not likely related as the dose of Progesterone is so low it normally does not have systemic effects. You may just want to give it some time to see if you adjust. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It : It depends on whether you have missed your period and when you took your tests. As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more
