Guide to Menstrual Cycles & Mental Health

Posted February 26, 2021 from United Kingdom

It contains plenty of helpful information such as:

  • The link between menstrual cycles and mental health and how mood, sleep, and energy levels are affected during periods.
  • Understanding premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and its more severe form premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) - their physical and emotional effects, what to look out for, and how PMS and PMDD symptoms mimic other mental health conditions.
  • Useful self-care tips and wellbeing advice during your cycle - how the right diet, exercise, emotional and stress management practices help, and other useful advice and resources for women.

Great story, keep it continues

Hello, Yoppie,

Welcome to World Pulse! What a joy that a new voice from UK is rising up.

Thank you for sharing this resource with us. We look forward to reading more from you.

Dear Yoppie,

Congratulations and thank you for sharing your first post on World Pulse. :)

I will read your post carefully.

I've lived with Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome for over 30 years so I understand what if feels like to be ignored and dismissed by GP's and gynaecologists.

I wrote and recorded a video about my experiences.

I'm so grateful you've shared your link so that you can educate other sisters and raise awareness about the menstrual cycle and mental health.

Take care and stay safe
Peace and blessings
