Pharmacist Marla Ahlgrimm | How PMA Affects You and Your Family

Marla AhlgrimmMarla Ahlgrimm, founder of Women’s Health America and co-founder of Madison Pharmacy Associates, says that PMS affects the entire family, not just the woman suffering its symptoms. If you are a woman who has trouble with PMS, it is normal to fear that your daughters will also suffer with the issue, says Marla Ahlgrimm. Ahlgrimm insists that taking a step back and looking for new ways to manage PMS can be beneficial to both mother and daughter. Here, Ahlgrimm shares a few tips on how to address PMS.

  • Keep and open and honest line of communication. Marla Ahlgrimm says that when PMS seems to run in a family, speak openly about the disorder early on.
