I have really severe cramping, heavy periods and migraines so my doctor recommended the pill. I am worried about side effects…what do you suggest?
Oral contraceptives, which contain synthetic hormones, can cause significant side effects for some women, such as an increase in the risk of heart attacks, breast cancer and stroke. Weight gain, blood clots, breakthrough bleeding, nausea, headaches, depression, vaginitis, urinary tract infection, breast changes and skin problems have also been associated with the use of oral contraceptives. It is important to remember that the birth control pill does not correct the underlying problem that is causing the symptoms in the first place. By balancing hormones with femMED Hormonal Balance, many women have reported improvement in the symptoms of PMS without the troubling side effects that can be associated with the birth control pill.
When I was younger, I had very easy menstrual cycles. Now, at 38, I suffer from insomnia, I get anxious, and I break out in acne! How can this be? Any suggestions?
PMS can make life miserable, and for some women, it can last for 14 days each month until menstruation begins. Your experience is common in that PMS symptoms at one age can be very different than at another. Often women will notice these changes after life events like childbirth, and by the same token, PMS can also be aggravated by stress, sugar, alcohol and caffeine intake, and a deficiency in progesterone. Using femMED Hormonal Balance to help balance your hormones can alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances or fluctuations at any age.
I am 43 years old and have been noticing some changes in my monthly cycles. My breasts get very tender, my cycles are much shorter, I get really moody and I’ve even had the occasional hot flash! Am I in menopause?
Most likely you are in perimenopause (or pre-menopause), which is the transition to menopause. This doesn’t happen overnight. It is the 5 to 10 years before menopause when a woman’s ovarian function is waning, resulting in fluctuating levels of estrogen. This hormonal imbalance, can lead to these, and other symptoms of perimenopause. Perimenopause can start in a woman’s late 30’s or early 40’s.
I am 46 and within the past year I’ve started having heavy periods, including one episode of flooding, some night sweats, and PMS that has worsened quite a bit. I get very nauseous and get migraines right before my period, too. I was wondering if Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) would help, but my best friend had breast cancer and I am concerned about increased risks…
You are right to be concerned. Recent research has shown that while HRT does help to control and manage some of these symptoms, it can also increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, blood clots, cardiovascular disease, breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. The ingredients in Hormonal Balance work together to help balance your hormones and reduce the symptoms associated with PMS and pre-menopause. It can also help to regulate menstrual cycles and alleviate symptoms associated with PMS and perimenopause.

What do you mean by “products are complementary”?

Why do you use vegetable capsules instead of gel capsules?
We set out to create the highest quality solutions in the marketplace today. We were very much against the use of gel caps because of the process by which they are manufactured. Gel caps are derived from primarily pig and bovine skin and bones. Gel caps are commonplace in the supplement and pharmaceutical markets, but as a company, we believe that vegetable caps are the better choice.
What are additives?
When it comes to choosing a nutritional supplement what is NOT in the product is just as important as what is. Be sure to carefully examine the NON-MEDICINAL ingredients, sometimes called excipients or additives. Many popular brands contain fillers, preservatives, glazes, sweeteners, artificial colors, binders, deodorizers, chemicals and potential allergens, such as lactose, gluten, dyes and gelatin. Some products include chemicals like titanium dioxide and sodium benzoate, which can be associated with significant health risks. So it is important to read the label carefully before you buy.
femMED offers a range of top quality nutritional supplements designed specifically for women that are free of these undesirable additives.
Is femMED environmentally responsible?
