My GP advised this

Hi - I have started to get back endo symptoms quite bad since I have started menopause. Ive tried all combinations of pain relief . I went to to see a different GP recently (lady) and she advised she had just been to a Gynae conference where a specialist speaker was recommending taking Ponstan a full 10 days before a period. Apparently women are not taking it correctly and this is how it has its fullest benefit. I wondered if this is the general guidance out there or is this relatively unknown? Anyone taking it in this way? Has it been a help?

All anti inflammatory medicines need to be taken this way. I take my naproxen 7 days before my endo due to start and it makes a big difference.
