I know Estradiol is one of three estrogens. Don't know about the other one.
> Has anyone here been involved with a clinical trial for an investigational drug for PMDD? I recently answered an ad for a study for PMS. I met with a study team member and their psychologist and was told I have PMDD. Honestly, this fits and it's about time that I can explain what happens to me. Classic symptoms. The drug they are studying is a Monophasic OCP, containing Drospirenone and Estradiol. I really don't want to take a psychotropic medication yet. I've tried herbal, and attempted lifestyle changes---however, the lack of self-control in the days before my period makes inforcing a diet, when you feel like eating the contents of a grocery store, a little difficult to say the least. My girlfriends have had mixed results while on OCP with their physical symptoms. Yet, I want to change the emotional symptoms. Anybody have any insights on this? Thanks.
