Premenstrual Syndrome is a collection of symptoms often associated with the emotional and physical ongoing connections a female experiences before and during her menstrual cycle. In some females, this emotional and physical connection does not lead to any tangible symptoms, however this is not the case for most.
Like clockwork every month, up to 90 percent of menstruating women report having one or more PMS symptoms. Symptoms such as: tender breast, fatigue, bloating, depression and irritability. The body may crave foods it usually doesn’t. Mood swings ensue, causing many to become short-tempered, saying things [she] doesn’t mean. At this time of the month, anger and tears may arise without apparent reason.
The female body is very complex and PMS is challenging to deal with. For some women, if not handled correctly each month, PMS can lead to incredible interference with daily mundane activities.
