What is premenstrual syndrome (PMS)?

PMS refers to a group of symptoms women experience a week or two before they start their period. Researchers theorize that PMS occurs following ovulation (when the ovaries release an egg) due to dramatic declines in estrogen and progesterone levels when you don’t get pregnant.

PMS usually resolves within a day or two after your period starts. PMS affects women of all ages and from all ethnic backgrounds. However, it’s more common in women with high-stress levels or a personal or family history of depression.

Many women find that their PMS symptoms get worse in their late 30s and early 40s as they approach menopause.

What are the symptoms of PMS?

PMS symptoms vary in type and severity and may affect physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Common symptoms of PMS include:

  • Bloating
  • Swollen and painful breasts
  • Cramping
  • Headache
  • Backache
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Food cravings
  • Depressed mood
  • Low libido

PMS symptoms can change throughout your life.
