- Pain during PMS.
- Acknowledging the cyclical nature of the menstrual cycle.
- The effects of stress on our hormones.
- The importance of sleep.
When it comes to PMS, we have come to a point where we accept whatever it throws at us. We deal with pain, aches, cramping even when it is extreme because we have begun to believe that is normal. But PMS pain especially when it is intense is not normal.
So how do we evaluate whether or not our PMS is normal or if we need to re-evaluate it. In this episode, I sit down with Lisa Hendrickson-Jack as we discuss what a normal healthy cycle looks like and what we should begin to evaluate if our cycle looks different.
"There is a time when we need to step back and take care of ourselves.”
We also dive into how health, exercise, sleep and what we eat play so much of a role not only in our infertility journey but in how our body’s respond to and make hormones.
We have to learn how to listen to our bodies and recognize when something is off based on us, rather than what someone else, or even society tells us.
“We think of situational stresses, but there are also chronic stresses.”
