  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great information. The idea of taking pills is tough but I will try the Evining Primrose to see if it helps.
  • Usually when I have PMS I tend to crave soda, and the caffeine seems to ease my cramps, but I must be dreaming?
  • Wow I can't believe I just came across this article. I have been trying to combat PMS for quite sometime but especially since I had my son 4 years ago. I did talk with my Gyne about taking vitamin B which I heard could help aleveate some of the symptoms I experience and she told me it couldn't hurt so I plan to try that along with calcium and magnesium mentioned by several others. I do exercise and drink water and tea around this time of the month but I do notice I also have to cut way down on my morning java as well as white refined carbohydrates, which a doctor I work with years ago told me to do, and has worked to this day.
  • I take calcium 600 plus D along with magnesium 250 mg (my multivitamin did not give me enough magnesium), this has made a HUGE difference for me. I think that other things mentioned in the article are very important for women also. Such as getting enough sleep and exercise. Two key things that many women do not make time for. Also, eating right is just good for you all the time for general welll being. Sometimes it make take up to 3 months of doing these things consistently for this plan to work, but you will probably notice results earlier. My daughter had PMDD and this has taken away all of her symptons.
  • I have been diagnosed with PMDD, but refuse to take the birth control pill because I am over 35 and a smoker unfortunatley! I have been on an antidepressant for the last year and a half after almost losing my family due to my wild mood swings. I had put off the anti-depressants for a long time becuase my husband was against them, but finally he agreed as a last ditch effort to save our marriage and it has helped really well with the severe moddiness, but not at all with the physical part of PMDD. I am seeing a significant decline since I am getting healthier and can only hope and pray that by the time I reach my goal of 175lbs lost that most of my symtoms will be "cured". I have spent countless hours researching PMDD because to be honest with you I couldn't stand being around myself and that is such an awful feeling because you can not escape from yourself. I feel really really bad for anyone who suffers with this condition, and if anyone ever needs a support system, don't be afraid to contact me!
    Thanks for submitting this article because at least now I know I am on the right track!
  • Yeah, my family knows that when I am PMS'y they better just leave me alone or I might snap!! I do eat healthy and follow all this advice, and I take antidepressants and ibuprofen but I am still a PMS monster!!
  • As i got older my PMS got stronger and harder to control, i wish i can go back to the days when i got NO symptoms at all, but alas such is not the case, but a good freind did recommend Evening Primrose, but i suffer with really bad migraines (for no apprent reason sometimes) so i am a littel skeptical of taking anything these days , i will try the non medicating routes first and see what happens, if my 7yr old son still thinks i am crazy after a couple months then it is time to visit the Dr.
  • great article. Luckily i don't get pms too bad. I like how it says don't smoke (well, isn't that a health concern for EVERYTHING) however, i don't think it would help my irritability.. i think it would make mine worse! lol
