What is PMS?

What is PMS?

What is this talk about PMS?

Sometimes periods come with uncomfortable symptoms.  Not fair right?!  Most of the time you will be fine.  However sometimes you may need some TLC.  Sometimes maybe even a doctor.

PMS is short for premenstrual syndrome.

It is when a girl has mood and body changes before or during her period.  It is usually at its worst during the 4 days before a period.  It should go away 2 or 3 days after the period begins.

What are some signs and symptoms of PMS?

  • you may feel sad
  • mood swings
  • you may be a little more cranky
  • have anxiety
  • tired
  • pimples
  • food cravings ( did someone say chocolate?)
  • tiredness
  • bloating
  • backaches
  • sore breasts
  • constipation
  • diarrhoea
  • headaches

Try to take it easy, rest up if you can, eat well and make sure you include fruit and veges in with your stash of chocolate and try to take gentle walks.

Eat less salt to reduce bloating.

Looking Ahead

Most girls settle into a regular period schedule and can manage any bothersome symptoms with home treatment. But talk to the doctor if you think there could be a problem with your periods.
