PMS – Premenstrual Syndrome

PMS is estimated to affect up to 40% of menstruating women in varying degrees of severity.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is defined as recurrent signs and symptoms that develop prior to menstruation and disappear once menstruation has ceased. In some cases, the symptoms are relatively mild but in others the symptoms can severely impact the woman’s daily life. It is often believed that these symptoms are ‘normal’ and need to be suffered in silence. Indeed, a number of these symptoms are common but they do not need to be your normal and you do not need to suffer in silence.

Symptoms can include:

  • Mood swings
  • Nervousness, anxiety and irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Diarrhea and/or constipation
  • Change in appetite
  • Tender or enlarged breasts
  • Uterine cramping
  • Altered libido
  • Headache
  • Backache
  • Acne
  • Localised swelling or fluid retention
