I'm glad people have generally welcomed this thread.
I'd love to know if any of you have done some of your own research and networking around this stage of your body's life.
I am doing my own reading, and this thread is the beginnings of my networking.
So far, everything I have read has confirmed my intuition that synthesized hormones are something I don't
want in my body.
I'm going to make a wee chart for myself to fill in over the next 6 months - I want to plot my:
against my hormone cycle.
The chart won't be complex - I don't have time or inclination for nuanced descriptions.
I'm lucky because I know my food and activity levels very well and don't need to chart these to teach myself what I'm doing.
If people are interested, I'm happy to share the form of the chart - my findings I'm happy to share, but only in the general
sense! I don't think people need to know my hair condition on day 23 of my cycle
Sometimes these exercises I've found very useful, but hard to sustain.
If you're the same and want to chart something similar, let me know - we can support one another?
