Premenstrual Syndrome - PMS

Premenstrual Syndrome, Menorrhagia and other Menstrual Disorders

What is Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)?

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a group of symptoms related to menstruation and the menstrual cycle. PMS symptoms occur in the week or two weeks before your period (menstruation or monthly bleeding). The symptoms usually go away after your period starts. Premenstrual Syndrome may interfere with your normal activities at home, school, or work. Menopause, when monthly periods stop, brings an end to Premenstrual Syndrome

The causes of Premenstrual Syndrome are not yet clear. Some women may be more sensitive than others to changing hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. Stress does not seem to cause PMS, but may make it worse. Premenstrual Syndrome can affect menstruating women of any age. 

Premenstrual Syndrome often includes both physical and emotional symptoms. Diagnosis of PMS is usually based on your symptoms, when they occur, and how much they affect your life.

Did you know your vaginal odor problem could be 
related to your vagina not having the correct pH level?

What are the symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome

Premenstrual Syndrome often includes both physical and emotional symptoms. Common symptoms are: 

* breast swelling and tenderness 

* fatigue and trouble sleeping 

* upset stomach, bloating, constipation or diarrhea 

* headache 

* appetite changes or food cravings 

* joint or muscle pain 

* tension, irritability, mood swings, or crying spells 

* anxiety or depression 

* trouble concentrating or remembering. 

Symptoms vary from one woman to another. If you think you have Premenstrual Syndrome, try keeping track of your symptoms for several menstrual cycles. You can use a calendar to note which symptoms you are having on which days of your cycle, and how bad the symptoms are. If you seek medical care for your PMS, having this kind of record is helpful. 

How common is Premenstrual Syndrome?

Estimates of the percentage of women affected by Premenstrual Syndrome vary widely. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, up to 40 percent of menstruating women report some symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome. Most of these women have symptoms that are fairly mild and do not need treatment. Some women (perhaps five to ten percent of menstruating women) have a more severe form of PMS. 

What treatments are available for Premenstrual Syndrome?

Many treatments have been tried for easing the symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome. However, no treatment has been found that works for everyone. A combination of lifestyle changes and other treatment may be needed. If your PMS is not so bad that you need medical help, a healthier lifestyle may help you feel better and cope with symptoms. 

Adopt a healthier way of life. Exercise regularly, get enough sleep, choose healthy foods, don't smoke, and find ways to manage stress in your life.

Try avoiding excess salt, sugary foods, caffeine, and alcohol, especially when you are having PMS symptoms. 

Be sure that you are getting enough vitamins and minerals. Take a multivitamin every day that includes 400 micrograms of folic acid. A calcium supplement with vitamin D can help keep bones strong and may help with PMS symptoms. 

In more severe cases, drugs such as diuretics, ibuprofen, birth control pills, or antidepressants may be used. 

Although Premenstrual Syndrome does not seem to be related to abnormal hormone levels, some women respond to hormonal treatment. For example, one approach has been to use drugs such as birth control pills to stop ovulation from occurring. There is evidence that a brain chemical, serotonin, plays a role in severe forms of PMS. Antidepressants that alter serotonin in the body have been shown to help many women with severe PMS.

What is Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)?

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder or PMDD, is a severe, disabling form of PMS. In PMDD, the main symptoms are mood disorders such as depression, anxiety, tension, and persistent anger or irritability. These severe symptoms lead to problems with relationships and carrying out normal activities. Women with PMDD usually also have physical symptoms, such as headache, joint and muscle pain, lack of energy, bloating and breast tenderness. According to the American Psychiatric Association, a woman must have at least five of the typical symptoms to be diagnosed with PMDD. The symptoms must occur during the two weeks before her period and go away when bleeding begins.

Research has shown that antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can help many women with PMDD. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two such medications to date for treatment of PMDD - sertraline (Zoloft) and fluoxetine (Sarafem).

They're an Inipad
And much "Better than a Tampon!"

A Tampon that's NOT a Tampon....

We are strategically positioned for success in the Feminine Hygiene and  Gynecologic Health marketplace through our revolutionary "Inipads."  Our Inipads are superior in every way to ordinary tampons.  We believe our Inipads are also much safer for women as well as the environment than other feminine hygiene products.

Femgyn Health's  INIPADS!
A Tampon that's NOT a Tampon!

Femgyn Health's Inipads are like a pantyliner - but NOT a pantyliner..... 

Femgyn Health's Inipads are like a  tampon, but not a tampon! 

Our new Femgyn Health's Inipads are similar to the previous "inter labial pads" in that they are placed between the labia minora (smaller lips) of a woman's vulva, on the outside of her vagina, and not IN the vagina (see picture below) like tampons are. 

Best of all, our Femgyn Health's Inipads are made from 100% certified organic cotton, the safest and best material that can be used for feminine hygiene....  with no adhesives or harsh chemicals ever used!

Our Femgyn Health's Inipads stay in place naturally in the "interlabial" space between a woman's labia minora without any harsh chemicals or adhesives, without shifting or bunching like menstrual pads and pantiliners....  Our Inipads won't dry out a woman's vagina like typical tampons do, especially toward the end of each menstrual period.  Finally, and best of all, our Inipads won't pinch your vagina or cause irritations of your vagina - not to mention the microscopic cuts inside of the vagina, the way tampons do, especially when inserting and removing a tampon from the vagina up to 4-6 times/day!

Women use our Femgyn Health's Inipads during their menstrual periods or for other feminine hygiene reasons, such as vaginal discharge or urinary leakage.  

Femgyn Health's Inipads don't overly absorb or cause vaginal dryness problems since they aren't worn in the vagina.

Femgyn Health's Inipads absorb like tampons worn inside the vagina, but are never inserted in the vagina like tampons - where a woman's vagina frequently becomes excessively dry toward the end of her period, due to the drying properties of tampons.

Femgyn Health's Inipads have two absorbencies which are our "Light Inipads" and our "Regular Inipads."

Femgyn Health's Inipads will never bunch up or shift around like the typical menstrual pads and they are very comfortable to wear, even when sitting for long periods!

Femgyn Health's Inipads are usually replaced when urinating, and can be safely flushed down the toilet or wrapped and thrown into the trash.

Remember!!!  Femgyn Health's Inipads are made from certified organic cotton - and NOT made from the same materials commonly used in the leading feminine hygiene brands of tampons and menstrual pads. This means that our Femgyn Health's Inipads are great for you and great for our environment!
