Periods are a great barometer for our lives. If any aspect of our health is out of whack, our cycles will usually start to show signs. Whether that looks like an extra heavy or light period, missing a period, a painful period, or horrible PMS, when your period is causing some disruption, it’s your body’s way to tell you something is going on. In this class, Dr. Ashley will discuss how our periods should work, ways in which they don’t work, and tips for how to balance your hormones. Handouts are included.
