In the menstrual cycle, there are three phases defined by the number of days and symptoms each with different symptoms occurring with different intensities. Triphasin contributes to the specific vitamin and mineral demands of the female body according to the relevant phases and may sooth the unpleasant symptoms which may occur.
Premenstrual syndrome and period pain affect tens of millions of women throughout the world every month. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists estimate that at least 85% of menstruating women have at least 1 PMS symptom as part of their monthly cycle. PMS can affect menstruating women of any age and the effect is different for each woman.
With symptoms such as abdominal cramps, back pain, mood swings and fluid retention, PMS is one of the most difficult ailments women have to deal with and must do so on a consistent monthly basis.
PMS symptoms occur 1 to 2 weeks before your period (menstruation or monthly bleeding) starts. The symptoms usually go away after you start bleeding.
PMS goes away when your monthly periods stop, such as when you get pregnant or go through menopause.
Follicular phase – Days 1-7
The part of the ovarian cycle before ovulation is the follicular phase. This phase begins with the menstrual bleeding and ends when the level of luteinizing hormone increases.
In this first menstrual phase of the menstrual cycle, there is a high loss of iron due to the bleeding; therefore, the orange tablet of Triphasin was designed, to contain higher amounts of iron, compared to the other colored tablets, to supplement the loss of iron caused by the follicular phase.
