How do you know if you have a hormonal imbalance?
How to bring harmony to your menstrual cycle
Hormones greatly influence our emotions and wellbeing and just the smallest of imbalances can have a huge impact on everything from our mood to sleep patterns. Conversation has led on the menopause and perimenopause but it’s important to note that hormonal fluctuations can occur at any time during a woman’s reproductive years.
Mood swings, heavy or painful periods, headaches, bloating can all be an indication that your system is out of kilter. We share the most common symptoms and introduce Female Hormone Support which has been formulated to help to calm irregularities in your menstrual cycle.
Mood swings and anxiety
Oestrogen has an impact on serotonin, a neurotransmitter, in the brain. It’s responsible for giving us a boost in mood so fluctuations in oestrogen as we approach our monthly period can make us feel anxious and depressed causing premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Female Hormone support contains ingredients to help create a healthy oestrogen balance. You may find that taking it in the week before menstruation helps to remove these feelings.
I’ve been taking two a day for nearly two months, they have been a life changer for me. I noticed a difference within a week. Previous to taking them I would be anxious, depressed and irritable for around 2 weeks a month. These have really lifted my mood I’m having many more good days than bad, I’m not overheating as much and have more energy. I would recommend to everyone!’
A drop in oestrogen levels just before menstruation may cause headaches and migraines in those that suffer from the condition. Try relaxation exercises to reduce stress which in turn will help to reduce the level of pain experienced. This is also a symptom that our supplement can help to balance.
Disturbed sleep patterns.
If you’re prone to PMS you are twice as likely to experience insomnia. Female Hormone Support contains hops and ashwagandha which help the body to cope with stress and sleep disturbances.
Cyclical breast discomfort
Breast tenderness can start as a dull ache from around 2 weeks before your period and can build up in discomfort. Female Hormone Support contains hops which are particularly helpful in reducing cyclical breast discomfort and tenderness.
Bloating and weight gain
Due to changes in hormones, water retention is commonplace in the days leading up to menstruation. Once your period arrives you should start to experience relief from the retention. Avoid eating too much salt with your foods and take Female Hormone Support in the week before your period.
Heavy or painful periods
Each month a lining builds up inside the womb, this lining is shed during menstruation. If your hormone levels are imbalanced the lining may become excessively thick and cause a heavy period. Our carefully formulated supplement may offer some relief to those who suffer heavy periods

However, we do advise that you seek professional advice if you suffer from stomach or back pain, painful intercourse or a frequent need to urinate as you may be suffering from fibroids. Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in the wall of the uterus. The hormones oestrogen and progesterone can cause fibroids to develop. They tend to shrink after the menopause as hormone levels decline. If you suffer from fibroids Female Hormone support is not recommended.
While we consider 28 days as being the norm for a menstrual cycle, the time scale can vary from 21 to 35 days. Speak to your doctor if your periods don’t fit within this timeline. One reason for could be that you are suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Women who have PCOS have very few periods and the condition causes enlarged ovaries and cyst-like follicles on the eggs.
