Managing Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

May 18, 2020 0Women’s health

Premenstrual Syndrome, or PMS, is a group of symptoms linked to the menstrual cycle. PMS symptoms occur in the week or two weeks before period (menstruation). The symptoms usually go away after the period starts. PMS can affect menstruating women of any age. It is also different for each woman. It is estimated that up to 80% of menstruating women suffer from symptoms of PMS on a monthly cycle. Cyclic changes in hormones seem to be an important cause. Fluctuations in one of a brain chemical signal may affect the mood and body.

PMS is a cluster of recurrent symptoms that occur prior to menstruation, which is a complex combination of:

  1. Mood disturbance eg. Irritability, mood swing, anger, anxiety and depression
  2. Physical symptoms eg. Breast swelling and tenderness, cramp, backache, headache, acne, fatigue, feeling of bloating and weight gain

We can manage or sometimes reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome by making changes in the way we eat, exercise and approach daily life:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat healthy foods including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
  • Limit salt and salty foods to reduce bloating and fluid retention
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol
  • Get enough sleep
  • Try yoga or massage to relax
  • Quit smoking
  • Include Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) in your diet. EPO helps to relieve PMS symptoms
