Premenstrual Syndrome Treatment Natural
PMS or Premenstrual syndrome affects around 80% of women.
It is used to define the symptoms women experience prior to menstruation.
It occurs during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle where there is a sudden drop in oestrogen and progesterone.
This sudden drop in hormones causes ‘withdrawal’ in the brain, and affects proper reasoning, mood and judgement.
Whilst stress is not thought to cause PMS it can make the symptoms worse.
Women who are prone to stress tend to produce less oestrogen and progesterone and are more likely to suffer PMS symptoms.
