I’m talking about exactly what you think I’m talking about, so if that makes you uncomfortable (especially knowing that I’ll be talking about breast discomfort), come back tomorrow. But if you have this problem like I do, keep reading. This is a sponsored post, and I hope it will have some helpful info in it for you.
There are certain times of the month when I don’t want anyone touching me. And I mean a hug or an arm slung around me… or I curse the mattress for its touch or cringe when my cat wants to curl up on my chest.
We deal with a build up of breast tissue, which can result in breast lumps, tenderness, swelling, heaviness and aches, as you’re probably aware if you have these issues every month. An estimated 50 percent of all women (in our childbearing years) deal with this. Yet, a recent survey revealed that 87 percent of women think this discomfort is normal and 81 percent have not consulted a doctor.*
I haven’t talked to my doctor about it. I just figured it was completely normal, even if it is majorly uncomfortable. But, there is something I could try to help.
Violet® iodine is a new, once-daily, non-hormone (drug-free) supplement that is made specifically for women to promote breast health and alleviate menstrual-related breast discomfort. It seeks to address the underlying cause of the symptoms rather than temporarily masking the discomfort (so, it’s more effective than if you use some heat relief and avoid underwire bras for a few days, which is usually my go-to).
Most women begin to experience symptom relief after taking Violet iodine for 60 days (2 menstrual cycles), although some women may experience relief sooner.**
Do you experience monthly breast discomfort?
