menstrual cycle

My 21 year old has spastic quadriplegia. She has been having periods since she was sixteen. They have started to become really irregular and this is making her extremely moody. She gets frustrated because of her physical limitations and her tone goes through the roof which in turn causes her pain. Anyone got any advice what I should do?

Menu thanks

    Have you thought about going to see a family planning counsellor? They should be able to provide you with help on issues such as pain relief, mood swings etc. Your GP should be able to recommend a clinic or look online for a local Brook centre. Some surgeries now have their own family planning practitioners too.
