You know those jokes around how you can always tell a woman is about to get her period? Mood swings, bloating, acne…they seem to be the tell-tale signs that her period is about to start.
PMS, or premenstrual syndrome, occurs in the lead up to menstruation. PMS can include symptoms like mood swings, irritability, digestive discomforts (bloating, constipation, diarrhea), acne, breast pain, and fatigue. If you suffer severe PMS, this really impacts your life and can impact everyone around you too.
Mood swings with lots of anger is what I experienced as PMS. Some months it was really bad. I would fight with my husband, threaten to divorce him, have a yelling match…it was not pretty. Luckily my husband is a good guy who knows me well and quickly began to realise that when I started getting angry with him for no real reason, it was that time of the month again.
But isn’t PMS normal? Doesn’t every woman experience these symptoms every month? You’ve never thought about seeing a health professional about it.
Unfortunately, PMS is so common that it has become normalized. But your monthly cycle doesn’t need to be plagued by unwanted symptoms. These symptoms are caused by hormonal imbalances. Before you get your period, your hormones are shifting – both progesterone and oestrogen are dropping. It’s this shift in hormones that cause your period to start. When your hormones are out of balance – oestrogen too high or low, for example – this can cause unwanted premenstrual symptoms.
Balancing your hormones can make huge improvements with reducing PMS. There are numerous ways to balance your hormone levels – seed cycling, using specific hormonal modulating herbs, and by addressing what’s causing your hormonal imbalances.
Imagine your life without monthly symptoms. No more mood swings, no uncomfortable bloating, no monthly skin breakouts. Balancing your hormones will have a huge effect on your life.
