which factor is considered a possible cause of premenstrual syndrome (pms)?

There is no one specific cause of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), it is believed that several factors may contribute to the development of PMS. Some of the probable causes of PMS include:

  • Hormonal changes: The levels of estrogen and progesterone, which are female hormones, fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle. It is thought that these changes may affect the levels of other hormones and chemicals in the brain, leading to the physical and emotional symptoms of PMS.
  • Genetics: Some women may be more susceptible to PMS due to their genes.
  • Nutrition: A diet that is low in certain nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, may increase the risk of PMS.
  • Stress: Elevated levels of stress can make PMS symptoms worse.
  • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as thyroid disorders, can cause symptoms similar to PMS.

It's worth noting that PMS is a complex disorder and it's likely that multiple factors, including genetic, environmental, psychological and lifestyle factors contribute to its development.
