Supplements for menstrual cycle

Hello, anyone have any advice of a good supplement to take to help with menstrual cycle? As soon as I ovulate my boobs are so sore and I bloat up! Period lasts about 9 days too which sucks. I'm 41 now so wondering if the menopause is brewing...

Evening primrose oil will help with sore breasts. Look for one with a good gla dose. You’ll need to take it for a month or two or maybe longer before you feel the benefit though. I’ve also taken agnus castus in the past to help regulate my cycle and help with pmt and it did the job. Not sure if either would help with bloating mind.
