How can premenstrual syndrome affect a woman?

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) can affect a woman in a variety of ways, both physically and emotionally. The symptoms of PMS can be different for each woman and can also change from month to month.
Physical symptoms of PMS include:

  • Bloating, swelling of the hands and feet
  • Headaches and/or migraines
  • Cramps or pain in the lower abdomen
  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Acne

Emotional symptoms of PMS include:

  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Crying easily
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping

PMS can also affect a woman's daily life, making it difficult to work, study, or perform other tasks. Symptoms can also affect relationships and can lead to social isolation.
It is worth noting that some women may experience severe symptoms, known as Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) which is a more severe form of PMS. Symptoms of PMDD are similar to those of PMS but are more severe, and they can have a significant impact on a woman's daily life.
