Since having my daughter two years ago, each month my pms is insane. Acne, oily skin, ridiculous cravings, sciatica, & terrible mood swings that more often than not leave me incredibly cross! Body aches, heightened smell… the list goes on! Like a mini once a month pregnancy. ???? any ideas on how to ease it or atleast deal would be great!

  • Thank you for advice.

  • I found drinking plenty of water, avoid salty foods and cut back on sugary foods.
    It depends what your craving is how hard it will be to reduce it

  • Your local GP or a health professional can assist with this and recommend the correct treatment or medication for you like the pill ect.

  • I have the same issue. Moisturiser and washing with gentle cleanser helped

  • Unfortunately my dr is refusing to trial the pill for me. Estrogen is a no no with my heart condition ????

  • I would talk to your Dr first. It’s probably all hormones but they might be able to suggest something, like some version of the pill to help level hormonal imbalances. They coulddo some tests to see your nutrition levels, see what could improve there.
