I’ve been using Angus castos for pmt which leaves me irritable, touch out and angry and I’ve noticed a huge improvement. I feel more balanced and relaxed. I stopped for a month and was fine, but taking it again as feeling irritable. It had a huge impact on my sex drive - I was worried I was going to pounce on the first man I saw at one point! Lol (not really, but you get the point!)

Anyway, I know other people have pmt with anger issues and thought you’d be interested to know how it affected me.

I’d really like to boost our chance of limited illness this winter and I read about burning myrtle. Good for antibacterial, stomach calming, etc. I thought alongside healthy eating and good fighting clean home would help! What do u think? How long should I burn it - every day all day. Is it nice smelling? Both ds and I are very sensitive to smells. Many thanks xx

So glad you posted about the Angus Castos, sounds like just what i need at the mo. Since having my twins nearly 2 yrs ago my hormones have been all over the place, have never had PMT like this before. Would you be able to let me know where you get it from and how you take it.
Thanks X

Interesting thank you.  Have also been experiencing pmt since ds2 was born 2 years ago.  Would also be interested to know how you take it.

Interesting that you post this, I was taking it from early this year until about June, it has a cumulative effect and I would say I didn’t notice an improvement in my PMT symptoms until April time.  Then I stopped taking it, didn’t notice it until this past month when I have had sore boobs, low libido etc.  I think it might be time to take it again!  I was taking a high dose first thing in the morning as was advised to me by a nutritionist.

I got it from our local independent health shop. I heard it was going to be taken off the shelf because of new eu laws, but you can get it on line. It is tablet form and I take it twice a day. The online one i found is a tincture - someone recommended this for when the tablets run out.
I read an article about angus castor and what sort of pmt it’s good for. I’ll see if I can find it and will let you know, as it supposed to be good for a certain type of pmt.  The advice I read was take it for a month or two until you feel better and then stop and repeat when you feel bad again.

Is it agnus castus (don’t know if there are differences or different types because of the different spellings) you were taking?

I took this too, it resulted in becoming pregnant with our first after a long time ttc (around 7 years possibly longer) and I took it to improve fertility, so be careful ladies wink

I took it for fertility too. We ttc’d too long for our first baby, the second one I took agnus castus and fell pg straight away - and did again this time too - so I swear by it for pregnancy achievement.

As for libido - yes I did notice that this time actually.

It is not safe in pregnancy though so you have to stop taking it as soon as you ovulate if there is any chance of you becoming pregnant.
