Okay I have noticed everytime I take Melatonin It stops my period.. I am going on 55 so not such a big deal, but have noticed the hotflashes are worse and bloating and feeling depressed is worse as well.. I thought it was just me but have looked it up and found that this is occuring with lots of women. My friend who is 8 years younger than me was taking Melatonin for years and stopped having periods. I think it's the Melatonin. She did not believe me but now she has told me that she stopped taking this supplement ..I know she stopped for a few months and her period came back. but now it's on and off for her,, I think she is having issues because of all the Melatonin she took for years.. This supplement is supposed to be safe but ladies it is a hormone so I am writing this to get the information out about this supposed safe supplement is not all that safe.. I think if it's throwing you into menopause early than it's not good for you. By the way,, though I am going on 55 i still have regular normal periods every month unless I am taking melatonin. I have been more or less testing this supplement on me for the past year and a half.. I can tell you for sure this is affecting my hormones.. So if you are taking Melatonin for sleep just be aware it can make your menopause worse! Also it makes me wonder what other supplements we are all taking that is supposed to be helping us that is actually causing issues.. I guess reg vitamins are not an issue but Saint Johns wart and Sam E and Melatonin are all hormone supplements so be very careful when taking.. The FDA does not regulate this stuff so be very careful.
This is sort of a ramble:So I woke up miserable today. I have this loop in my thoughts and that loop keeps me in the negative or extreme positive thought process. There is an in-between but these days I feel like mostly I'm in the negative process. I can't stop having negative thoughts about my life. I keep going back and forth between virtuous and vicious cycles and its frustrating. ...
I am thinking it is my allergies because my ears and roof of my mouth and nose are itchy. I keep having hot flashes which I believe are my ocd/anxiety. can someone please help me come in off the edge of the mental cliff that I am on
