1. Pre-menstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Pre-menstrual syndrome, also known as PMS, is a broad term that refers to a pattern of behavioural symptoms experienced before the onset of menstruation.

There are two types of pre-menstrual syndrome which are physiological and psychological.

Psychological symptoms of PMS include:

• Lethargy

• Anger

• Irritation

• Anxiety

• Sensitivity to rejection

• Decreased work/home activity

• Hypersomnia (sleeping during the day)

• Overwhelm/tearfulness

• Hopelessness

• Difficulty focusing

• Forgetfulness

At least 90% of females in their reproductive years experience unpleasant physiological and psychological pre-menstrual symptoms.

Although common, PMS is not a ‘normal part of being a woman’ and just because you are experiencing symptoms does not mean you should be.
