Dubbed the “evil twin” of PMS, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) is a largely understudied and misunderstood condition affecting approximately 5% of the menstruating population today.
Just like with other mental health disorders, the good news is that there is help and hope out there for the women who are impacted.
While there is no“one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to managing PMDD, there are ways to help manage or alleviate some of the symptoms through lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise & supplements and via seeking help from professionals and those around you.
To mark this year’s World Mental Health Day, we thought we would open up the conversation, challenge the stigma and try to make sense of that messy relationship between our menstrual cycle and our mental health.
It has been reported that over27,931used tampons and applicators are found on beaches around the world daily! With staggering figures like these, it may be time we approach the products we use during our menstrual cycle in a different, more sustainable way.
