Premenstrual Syndrome, commonly known as PMS, affects women hormonally and causes many annoying symptoms in the week or two prior to the onset of the menstrual cycle.
The symptoms leave nothing to spare they come at you physically, emotionally and psychologically. Some of the more obvious ones are bloating, crying, fatigue, depression, tender breasts, mood swings and headaches.
Not all women suffer with PMS but it affects approximately eighty percent of them. The highest occurrence is in women in their late twenties and early forties. Most of the time women only experience minor symptoms that last just a couple days.
In these cases, the symptoms are easily treatable. A small number of these cases pose severe symptoms that can easily disrupt the victims’ social and work life for up to 2 weeks.
In almost all cases, the beginning of menstruation marks the end of the symptoms. There is a more serious form of PMS called Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, or PMDD, that causes severe problems both emotionally and physically.
PMDD causes severe depression, anxiety, heavy tension and mood swings. Only about five to seven percent of women are ever diagnosed with PMDD and it typically calls for prescription medication to treat the anxiety and depression.
There is no real way to actually diagnose premenstrual syndrome. One thing you can do on your own is to keep a diary of the different signs and symptoms that you notice in the weeks leading up to your menstrual cycle. This will allow you to find a pattern and know what to expect from month to month.
No two women experience the exact same problems in the same way. Some womens symptoms are barely noticable while others find their lives completely disrupted for the duration. Some of the most common symptoms include: Bloating in the abdomen, weepiness, weight gain, anxiety, tender breasts, tension, backache, tension, joint pain, depression, muscle aches, anger, fatigue, irritability, insomnia, mood swings, acne breakouts, changes in appetite and food cravings.
If you are leery about the side effects that prescription drugs pose then there are several herbs that can help you get through your time of the month. Don Quai is well known for it’s ability to stabilize the hormones and will help to keep your reproductive system in good working order. Fennel, Melissa and Pulsatilla can all help to suppress the symptoms of PMS and are good for your body in many other ways.
