I told you guys when I introduced you to Violet Iodine last month that my story was a little different. I’m not your everyday average gal with with normal premenstrual syndrome. A few years back I had a hysterectomy and while the surgeon did a great job taking all my lady bits, he left me with one ovary, which means PMS never went away. I’ll admit it is milder than years past, but it still exists and I do suffer from breast discomfort and mood swings. We are just focusing on the breast pain today.
Violet Iodine is a once a day, non hormone, non prescription pill that alleviates breast tenderness, aches, swelling and heaviness associated with the menstrual cycle and overall breast health. I gave Violet Iodine a shot for 30 days and here’s what I think.
I received Violet Iodine right on time, about a week before my non-existent menstrual cycle. That week before is, like I said before, is a week of breast pain and mood swings. My breasts feel tender to the touch, wearing a full support bra is painful. Normally, I would take some ibuprofen in hopes that it would calm the inflammation and alleviate some pain. It does the trick most of the time, but I’m not a fan of taking pain medication for an entire week. So I got the Violet Iodine and started using it right away.
Breast discomfort is more than a mere side effect of the menstrual cycle. It is often due to a benign condition called Fibrocyst Breast Condition (FBC). One proposed cause of FBC is the imbalance of hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and prolactin which causes cell growth in the breast tissue to build up month after month, resulting in swollen breast tissue that puts pressure on surrounding nerves.
Violet iodine is a patented, non-hormone molecular iodine formula that addresses an underlying cause of FBC (rather than masking the discomfort temporarily). When I wake up in the morning, after brushing my teeth and before putting on my makeup, I took one Violet Iodine orally on an empty stomach. I initially started taking this right at the beginning of my PMS, so breast pain was present. After a week of taking Violet Iodine, my pain went from an 8 to a 4. Awesome!
It’s been 30 days and time for PMS again. This month was different than July, because since taking the pill daily, I have no breast pain. None. It is great to be able to do things that you have not done in years, like be hugged, wear a full coverage bra or even jump for joy.
