Is CBD the Remedy for Period Pain?

Sponsored Post  I used to be really lucky with my periods, they were never that heavy and I didn’t tend to have much pain either. After I had my children, I had the Mirena coil fitted and my periods are now very light and don’t bother me much at all, other than some cramping and my hormones go all over the place too.  I was offered to review Our Remedy,...

Thinking About a New Year, New You?

•Sponsored post• I don’t know about you, but as a year draws to a close, I feel motivated to start making some changes for the year ahead.

I think we were only meant to look at it for part of the session,...

As I have the mirena coil, my periods are generally fairly light and relatively pain free these days but I wasn’t overly keen to have my period for such a special trip so...

Why I Welcome Smear Tests (and so Should You) 

Back when I was pregnant I received a letter through the post to tell me I was due a smear test. Obviously I couldn’t have it done whilst pregnant but, three months after having Benjamin, I was able to.
