Every time I see the commercial where the pre-teen tries to trick her friends into believing that she received her monthly visitor, I laugh hysterically. I remember sitting with friends as they talked about how exciting it would be when our period arrived. We had no idea exactly what this would mean. Mine made its grand entrance on Easter Sunday and despite all the talks and books, I was not prepared. I awoke with the worse stomach ache and thought I was about to die. As time went on, I was able to handle the belly aches but the breast tenderness that happens days before never subsided.
This tenderness which I later learned was a sign that days later my menstrual would begin is the worse. I have a love hate relationship with this tenderness. I hate it because during these days, I hate for anything to touch my breast and since I don't live in a topless society, I have to suffer in silence. I love it, well appreciate it because it is this tenderness that helped me to find the lump that was later diagnosed as cancer.
I was thrilled at the opportunity to try out Violet Iodine because hugs should not hurt. It is a molecular iodine supplement that, when taken daily, alleviates the most common symptoms of premenstrual breast discomfort, including swelling, tenderness, aches and heaviness and it promotes optimal breast health. It contains no hormones and does not require a prescription. Adding this to my daily wellness routine should be simple.
