The level of Estrogen (female harmone)- in your body rises & falls unevenly so so your menstrual cycles may lenghten and shorten.
In 6-12 months you will be absolutely fine. This is a difficult time for your family too (mood swings uff)
*Yoga, meditation/ breathwork can help to keep you calm
*calming teas are helpful
*Vitamin D top-up is important.
*Dong quai is my absolute favourite herb, a remedy from traditional chinese medicines. You can use the root of this plant as a tincture/extract/ as a tea.
