There’s no doubt that for many women, PMT is a monthly ordeal.
PMT – or Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS) as it’s also known – is a monthly pattern of symptoms that tend to start about a week before your period and usually disappear within a few days after your period starts.
To be perfectly honest, no one is 100% sure why some women are affected more than others, but it’s thought that PMT is likely related to changes in your levels of oestrogen and progesterone – the two main hormones in your menstrual cycle.
From physical symptoms such as tiredness, tummy pain, greasy hair, spotty skin and headaches, to emotional symptoms such as mood swings, anxiety and irritability, the ‘time of the month’ can – for many women – be a horrible one.
If you’re affected by PMT, Toome Pharmacy has a complete range of supplements that can alleviate both your physical and mental symptoms.
Menopause tends to affect women in their 50s, but can begin as early as the 30s.
For some women, practically every part of the body can be affected by menopause.
From hot flushes and sweats, to joint and muscle pain, to vaginal dryness, to sexual difficulties, the menopause can bring on a wide range of symptoms, ranging from the mildly troublesome to the truly debilitating.
The good news is, however, that at Toome Pharmacy we can help to lessen the impact of menopause on your day-to-day life with a range of vitamins and minerals that can help combat the physical changes that menopause brings – such as brittle bones and dry skin – as well as the emotional changes:
Whether you’re a 17-year-old girl, who is experiencing serious PMT every month, or a woman in your 50s, who is finding the menopause difficult to cope with, Toome Pharmacy can provide you with a range of supplements, minerals and vitamins that will make life just that little bit easier.
