Despite the fact that over 90% of women of childbearing age experience PMS, does not make it NORMAL. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), is a a combination of symptoms that women experience about a week to two weeks before the onset of their period. These symptoms vary from woman to woman and can even change over the course of a woman’s life.
Some symptoms of PMS can include:
- Mood Swings (irritability, sadness)
- Social Withdrawal
- Pelvic Cramping
- Food Cravings
- Acne Flare-Ups
- Constipation or Diarrhea
- Breast Tenderness
Although it is not clearly understood what causes PMS or why some woman have more severe symptoms, fluctuating hormone levels ar thought to play a role.
