PMS

What is PMS?

Premenstrual tension syndrome (PMS) are symptoms that occur in the second half of the menstrual cycle, which go away when menstruation comes and which negatively affect the life of the woman. The most common symptoms are depression, irritability, anxiety, headache, fluid retention and bloating. PMDD is a more severe form of PMS.

What is the cause of PMS

The cause of PMS is not known, but it is common and becomes more common with increasing age.

 

Examination

The diagnosis is made by documenting your symptoms for at least 3 cycles. We recommend using a form, such as the one you can find here.

 

Feel free to check your vitamin D and calcium levels, since low levels can worsen the symptoms. Furthermore, it is not possible to detect changes in hormone levels during PMS.
