Ugly crying during a sea turtle documentary a whole week before your period? No worries — that might be your hormones giving you some pre-menstrual emotional turbulence. Get yourself some chamomile tea and practice some extra selfcare
Pre-Menstrual Symptoms Can Start A full 7 Days Before Your Period
Feeling “off” before your period even starts is totally normal. Apparently, about 3 out of every 4 menstruating women experience some form of premenstrual moodiness, breast tenderness, food cravings, and fatigue.
For the most part, premenstrual symptoms don’t need major interventions in order to deal with them. Good nutrition, over-the-counter hormone-balancing products
Should your symptoms persist or become unbearable, you may need to check in with an OGBYN, though.
Premenstrual Symptoms and Your Vaginal pH
The hormonal shifts occurring the week before your period can also disrupt your vaginal pH (lucky you). To keep your natural flora happy and thriving down there, we recommend using a pH balancing daily vulva moisturizer
Not only does this particular formula keep your pH in check, it includes powerful herbs like Chaste Tree Berry and Dong Quai that help correct estrogen and progesterone imbalances. The closer you are to Whole Body Balance, the happier your body will be around your cycle.
