85% – 97% of women of reproductive age experience menstrual and hormone disorders including PMS, endometriosis, fibroid’s, hot flushes, polycystic ovaries or difficulty conceiving a child.
Pain and hormonal symptoms are common, many women suffer in silence; assuming mood swings, menstrual pain and cramping, or irregular cycles are normal. This is not the case and your monthly period should be a regular and relatively symptom-free process.
Are your hormones out of balance?
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Perhaps the most well-known complaint, PMS is used to describe several symptoms that collectively occur during the second half of the menstrual cycle and subside with the onset of the period or very soon afterwards.
The most common emotional or mood-related symptoms include;
A condition in which endometrial tissue (the lining of the uterus) is found in sites outside the uterus, but typically within the abdomen. Oestrogen stimulates the growth of endometrial tissue. Every month, when oestrogen is produced endometrial tissue is stimulated, wherever it is located. The can cause significant pain and inflammation, pelvic discomfort, painful intercourse, abnormal bleeding, PMS and in some cased may affect fertility.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
A hormonal condition characterized by high levels of the hormone testosterone in a woman’s body. Symptoms of PCOS include hirsutism (excessive growth of hair on a woman’s face and body), obesity, infertility and insulin resistance (blood glucose imbalances)

For many couples, deciding to have a baby is an exciting time, but for 1 in 7 couples this is a difficult process. Your doctor may find a reason such as Polycystic ovaries, endometriosis or sperm issues but for many the diagnosed is “unexplained infertility”.

Peri-menopause & Menopause
This often starts in your late 30’s and early 40’s, the time before menopause.
This is a time of fluctuating oestrogen levels, where your period begins to change, for example, your periods may become shorter or longer, heavier or lighter.
You will make more oestrogen than before and less and less progesterone. Common symptoms include hot flushes, sleep disruption and night sweats. These can be supported naturally.
