So, lately, I've been drinking spearmint tea, or a blend of peppermint and spearmint tea. It's weird, one day, I got the biggest craving for spearmint. So, I bought tea, and later read that spearmint and peppermint can help with PCOS. I've been drinking this for about 2 mons. on average 2x daily. I also take cinnamon and flaxseed oil. I'm hoping maybe the combo of these things will bring on normal cycles, but so far, nothing so last month I used prog cream to give me a cycle as it was going on my 3rd month w/o one. AF ended a week ago. Today and yesterday, I've been having these yuck feelings. I think it's a good sign b/c I always used to get them a week before my period - never at this time, though. Does this mean my hormones are sorting themselves out or what does it mean? KWIM by yuck feelings? It's like I'm very sensitive to things. The tea I noticed heightens these feelings.
I hope the tea will be of some use other than staining my teeth, lol. It's supposed to, at the least, help with irregular hair growth. I've been depressed lately because at 31 for the past several months I've had bouts of major vaginal dryness and just less vaginal discharge than normal. I feel like my reproductive system is shuttering at times, though I think the vaginal dryness could be caused by changes in progesterone as I really notice it when I've done things that triggered prog production, or reduced it (raspberry leaf, prog cream). So, I'm glad that I have these yuck feelings. I associate them with normal periods, periods I always used to have. I wish I could understand my body as anytime I think I've made progress w/PCOS, I get new changes or symptoms... Could these feelings have something to do with ovulation? IDK if I'm ovulating or not. I think not b/c medicines that make me ovulate cause severe mood changes in me, not to mention rapid heartbeat and other changes. Sorry so long. Guess I'm just spelling out some of my thoughts lately.
