We hope that everyone is getting cozy and starting to bundle up for the cold weather. This month we are raging on about PMS: Premenstrual Syndrome. We also wanted to share some information about No-Shave November. Our sister business, Greater Binghamton LaserCare , is donating to the cause this month and we thought we should share the news!
A special thanks to all of our patients for visiting us on Halloween for our annual Trick-or-Treating. Pictures of our visitors can be found on our facebook page.
You may have heard about the “No-Shave November” initiative sponsored by the American Cancer Society which raises money for cancer research by encouraging people to STOP SHAVING for the entire month! We at Greater Binghamton LaserCare didn’t want to be left out and we want your help getting involved!
During the month of November, we will donate $10 for each new client who purchases a laser hair removal session and $30 for each new client who purchases a laser hair removal package! If you have already had laser hair removal at Greater Binghamton LaserCare then you know how well it works, so tell your friends, your family members, your coworkers, and support this great cause! (without stubble!)
Raging about PMS
When it’s more than just hormones
ACOG defines PMS as “mood swings, headaches, fatigue, bloating, acne, breast soreness,
food cravings, thirst, diarrhea, or nausea” that can occur just before or during your period each month. Teens can be affected but unfortunately age is not a factor in diagnosis of PMS. When symptoms prevent a woman from enjoying daily activities, it could mean that you have PMDD, or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder.
Does this sound like you or someone you know? You may be able to manage your symptoms each month by exercising, avoiding salty or caffeinated food & drink, getting plenty of rest, and minimizing stress. Sometimes, however, it is necessary to see your provider. Common treatments that you may discuss include hormonal contraception for shorter, lighter, or fewer periods.Leave a reply →
