What is Premenstrual Syndrome?

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a group of physical and emotional symptoms that occur in the days leading up to a woman's menstrual period. Symptoms can include bloating, headaches, cramps, fatigue, irritability, and mood swings. The severity of symptoms can vary from woman to woman and can also change from month to month. PMS is not well understood, but it is believed to be caused by hormonal changes that occur during the menstrual cycle. Treatment options include over-the-counter pain relievers, birth control pills, and lifestyle changes such as exercise and stress management.
