"blue moons" is recommended by the Chairman of NAPS, Mr. Nick Panay
take control of your pms, pcos or endometriosis
The blue moons diary is a new concept in self-care books - an integrated health monitoring diary. With a foreword from Mr. Nick Panay, Chairman of NAPS, it offers women with pms or related conditions a genuine opportunity to take control of their health.
If you suffer from pms, pcos or endometriosis, understanding and controlling your symptoms can be quite difficult. This is why the British Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the US National Insitute of Health recommend keeping a record of your symptoms and the factors that may influcence them. But this is easier said than done - many women struggle to know what symptoms to record and, more importantly, how to record symptoms in a way that makes sense when it comes to reviewing them later. The blue moons diary has been specifically designed to make recording and monitoring your symptoms easy. This will not only help you to better understand your condition, but it will also help your doctor, or any other therapist you see, to better understand and monitor your condition as well.
Mr. Nick Panay, BSc MRCOG MFFP, Chairman of NAPS, writes:
"The blue moons diary enables women to better understand the relationship between their symptoms and various lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise and stress. A journal section also allows the recording of thoughts and emotions - factors known to play a key role in affecting menstrual disorders. The diary's sympton chart can be read by women, their doctor or nurse and it will make both diagnosis and ongoing management of their condition much easier.
"Some women with premenstrual syndrome find that charting their symptoms allows them to regain control of their lives and occasionally, is sufficiently therapeutic to avoid the need for medical intervention.
"Because of the complex nature of hormone related health issues I often delay treatment for up to three months and ask women to chart their symptoms. I would be delighted if every woman came to my clinic with one of these diaries."
There are nearly 2 million women in the UK alone who suffer from severe menstrual disorders but the blue moon diary is about you - it's about helping you to understand your specific symptoms so that you can help yourself and sort them out.
