Hormone imbalance and vitamins?

Posted by r531 @r531, May 29, 2019

Hello, I have high levels of testosterone which makes my periods extremely irregular. I was put on birth control to regulate my hormones but it made me extremely sick so I had to go off of it. As a result I've been doing a lot of research on natural remedies to balance hormones instead of hormonal therapy. I've read that certain supplements might help but nothing seems to be proven. Is there anything proven to help balance hormones naturally in order to regulate periods? Does anyone else have natural remedies such as vitamins, supplements, or life style changes that made their periods regular?

Hi, @r531 – I wanted to add my welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Glad you connected with @lioness. I think that @contentandwell @karina77 @hamilton1995 and @susie2525 may also have some thoughts about the hormonal imbalance you are trying to treat, the sickness you felt with a birth control pill and your search for other remedies such as vitamins, supplements, or lifestyle changes that might contribute to more regular periods.

Have you considered trying another type of birth control? What did your doctor recommend, in light of the side effects you felt were not tolerable?

@lisalucier @r531 I am sorry, I know absolutely nothing about this. I did take birth control a long time ago, before I had children (that's a very long time ago!) but never had a problem with it, except I thought it did increase my migraines.
