If u are concerned i would see ur doc. I would usually get any changes checked out if its not usual. I have heard evening primrose oil is good, havent tried it tho. Google PMS symptoms and maybe there will be info about what u can take to help. Hope this helps a little xx


Hi, I posted on here yesterday, I got my notes from doctor yesterday I have had my lap mid feb- treated endo in pouch of Douglas cyst removed from ovary and coil removed also I have clubbed tubes, I'm 34yrs old. My doctor put me on the pill straight after lap, she wants me to have a period so taken a break due on anytime now!!! She warned me could be heavy and given me co-dydamol and mefenamic acid (tablets) to help with flow of period, google it see if it is something you might benefit from x


Thank u for reply Im reluctant to go to my docs as not very good but they are my only hope I will google for pms worth trying primrose oil,hard to know where to go with endo as very little upstanding medically thank u again x


Ask to see a female doctor who deals with women's health, you might need to book couple of weeks ahead. Ive been very luck as my gp has been bloody brilliant, i also take zinc and a higher dose of vit d as she thought i would benefit from them.

Best of luck
