Premenstrual Syndrome

There would be no harm in taking the 2 medications in conjunction. If you would like to discontinue the pill I would suggest that you start taking the Femolene in conjunction with the pill for 2-3 months and then try and discontinue the pill whilst continuing on Femolene. It will unfortunately have to be trial and error as there are no guarantees that the Femolene will work for you. If it does not and you have had successful treatment with the pill previously, then you may need to go back on the pill. Note that when you are off the pill you will need to use an alternative form of contraception if sexually active. Regards Dr Sean Gomes MD

It sounds as though your girlfriend is suffering from Pre Menstrual Syndrome (PMS). This is a spectrum of symptoms associated with menstruation, starting a week to ten days before menstruation. It is triggered by changes in progesterone and oestrogen. Symptoms can include: Abdominal bloating, Abdominal cramps, Vomiting, Breast tenderness or swelling, Stress or anxiety, Trouble falling asleep (insomnia), Joint or muscle pain, Headache, Fatigue, Acne and Mood swings. Typically an oral contraceptive pill is prescribed in order to help regulate the hormones. This is normally quite effective. You would need to see your docto or you can visit our nurse practitioner at the WellClinic. Complementary and lifestyle approaches include: 1) A daily supplement of 1,000 to 1,200 mg of calcium and 200 to 400 mg of magnesium helps reduce the risk of mood swings, bloating, headaches, and other symptoms 2) Emphasise low-fat, high-fibre foods and plenty of fruits and vegetables to improve hormone metabolism 3) Aim for regular aerobic exercise to help reduce symptoms 4) 20 mg a day of a concentrated herbal extract, agnus castus, for up to three months may help balance hormones 5) Take 100 to 200 mg per day of vitamin B6 to help reduce symptoms.

Please read through my Health Guide on PMS on my main page. It details the vitamins and herbal remedies that would be beneficial. You may need to use the remedies for one or two months before noticing the full effects as the hormones take a while to balance themselves properly. regards Dr Chase Webber ND
