Mare with hard heat cycles

I have a paint mare that is going through incredibly hard heat cycles. I have her on smartMare harmony from Smartpak and she is responding well but still spends most of the day rubbing up against her stall walls and can be very witchy and unresponsive. She has never been bred but I read somewhere that a silver ball can be inserted into her uterus simulating pregnancy and that it has worked in calming down high strung mares. I know it needs to be professional inserted and needs cleaned every year but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this or has suggestions for what I can do for her nasty monthlies :) Thanks so much.

The first thing I would do if have a comprehensive breeding exam done on her. Have it done when she's in heat. She could have a cyst, tumor or infection that is the root cause of the problem.
