Ladies, are you tired of the “rag”
being a “drag”?
Premenstrual symptoms have been assumed to be just “a natural part of the menstrual cycle”, affecting most women at some time during their lives. If your body doesn’t react strongly to its monthly hormonal changes, you probably have mild premenstrual symptoms or none at all. If you have one or more mild to moderate premenstrual symptoms that disrupt your work, relationships with others, or sense of well-being, you are said to have premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
NOW IT’S TIME TO SAY “PMS – BEGONE!”
Join me as I discuss how I overcame all symptoms of PMS, using some simple tools and knowledge that anyone can easily learn and apply. You will be truly amazed as your next cycle is now much more pleasant and manageable!
PMS symptoms vary greatly from woman to woman and cycle to cycle, and they can range from mild to severe. Some women note that their symptoms are worse during times of increased emotional or physical stress. Of the more than 150 symptoms that have been linked to PMS, the most common are listed below.
Physical symptoms may include:
- Breast swelling and tenderness.
- Bloating, water retention, weight gain.
- Changes in bowel habits.
- Nipple discharge when nipples or breasts are pressed. (Any leakage that spontaneously happens when you aren’t pressing on the nipple should be checked by a health professional.)
- Food cravings, especially for sweet or salty foods.
- Sleep pattern changes.
- Fatigue, lack of energy.
- Decreased sexual desire.
- Pain. Common complaints include headaches or migraines, breast tenderness, aching muscles and joints, or cramps and low back pain prior to menstrual bleeding.
Behavioral symptoms may include:
- Withdrawal from family and friends.
Emotional and cognitive symptoms may include:
- Depression, sadness, hopelessness.
- Anger, irritability.
- Mood swings.
- Decreased alertness, inability to concentrate.
By definition, premenstrual symptoms only occur during the luteal phase, between ovulation and the start of menstrual bleeding, or soon after. Premenstrual symptoms can occur during the entire luteal phase or can appear briefly during ovulation, in the days leading up to menstrual bleeding, or both. You may notice that the severity and pattern of your PMS symptoms varies from month to month. You may also stop or start having PMS symptoms for no clear reason.
