  • I thank God that I no longer have to deal with PMS ! But stay tuned hot flashes are another sign that God has a strange sense of humor. Ugh! It sounds like you ladies have a better handle on things due to being better informed. Good luck to you all. - 8/29/2014 12:43:26 AM
  • Anyone know what do do about sleep trouble during Pms? For most of the third week I am a wreck b.c. Of it. - 12/3/2013 4:41:26 PM
  • I've never suffered much from PMS, but I figured out as a teen that when I got cramps, I could exhaust my abdominal muscles by doing sit ups and then they didn't have the strength to cramp any more. - 7/31/2013 12:22:37 AM
  • I have horrible PMDD...three weeks out of the month I feel like I am wigging out. To anyone experiencing the same thing I would say read "The Woman Code" by Alissa Vitta. She designs a plan to decimate the symptoms. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like a lot of women have had a lot of success doing the program and it is easy to follow.

  • Too true! Thanks for commiserating. - 5/22/2013 6:57:55 AM
  • Great article. For those who suffer from PMS, I have some bad news for you. It doesn't stop with the onset of Menopause. We just get to add hot flashes and night sweats to the list. Oh, the joys of womanhood. Some days I would just love to slap Eve! lol - 5/20/2013 3:54:29 PM
  • Well-written article with some good information.

    A reminder, though, as this is a pet peeve of mine - birth control pills do not do anything to "fix" or "cure" menstrual or pre-menstrual problems. In fact, what they do is to stop your normal cycles completely. The bleed you get is simply shedding of the uterine lining from withdrawal of the hormones at certain times. It doesn't remove the menstrual problems, it removes the real menstrual cycles.

  • When I had PMS, it would be binging and depression as the worst part. I could go through chips and chocolate like there was no tomorrow. I had a hysterectomy 20 years ago and have not missed PMS one little bit. - 5/20/2013 10:39:32 AM
  • Great article. don't forget to have hormones checked as well no matter your age. Hormonal imbalances can make PMS and periods a lot more painful and can make you feel like you have the flu each month. My 20yo needs supplements from days 20-28 and I'm peri-menopausal. We are both a mess so I appreciated this article. - 12/12/2012 1:22:56 PM
  • There are some great comments.

    I feel like when I get PMS everyone in the house goes nuts too, including my husband and son.

  • I think its funny that one of the tips was to limit sweets and candy! Tell a woman with PMS that she can't have chocolate and see how that goes! haha!!

    I experience pretty severe PMS and experience most of the symptoms on the list. I will definitely take these tips into consideration. - 12/3/2011 8:36:00 AM
  • I hate that note after PMDD "Unlike PMS, PMDD is bad enough to interfere with your life"

    Now I've met girls who've had really bad symptoms, such as pain so bad that they fainted, and they have to go on medication, but I'm not wrong in complaining when I feel depressed for no reason except that I have PMS. I feel tired no matter what I do. It's a little bit of interference I think. - 9/8/2010 9:48:21 PM
  • When I was a teenager my PMS wasn't that bad. my sister had it really bad and still does. Even after my kids were born it wasn't too bad. AFter my last child was born, I had my tubes tied. I wanted nothing to do with my husband for 6 months, maybe that had something to do with having 3 kids ages 5 and under or my hormones being out of whack or both. However, that was 5 years ago and for the longest time I had no symptoms of PMS or anything, didnt even know it was coming, except for my major moodswings. Now as I am approaching 30, it is getting more noticeable. My breasts hurt and I am way more adept to mood swings almost to the point that I can't stand to be around myself or anyone else. I had been taking a DIM supplement and that seemed to help with my mood swings, I really need to get into taking it again. Exercise and getting enough rest and water definitely helps. - 6/1/2010 8:42:52 AM
  • Great information. The idea of taking pills is tough but I will try the Evining Primrose to see if it helps. - 3/8/2010 2:03:02 PM
  • Usually when I have PMS I tend to crave soda, and the caffeine seems to ease my cramps, but I must be dreaming? - 12/12/2009 11:51:01 PM
