Do you feel better after your period? I have skipped mine using continuous birth control for over two years since I first started with POTS, in the hope this would improve my blood volume. I have recently been researching blood viscosity and flow to the brain and have decided to start menstruating again to see if the reduced haematocrit will help perfuse my oxygen starved brain! I will be having my first period in years in the next 2 weeks and hope I don’t experience worsening adrenergic symptoms, however as I medicate my cycle my body will have no way of knowing in advance that it won’t be getting a pill that week!
Have you thought about suppressing your cycle with birth control if monthly symptoms are problematic?
