What is Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)?
Over 90% women experience Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) 1-2 weeks before having their period. It also know as period pain in general.
PMS is a combination of physical and emotional symptoms that occurs after ovulation and before period starts. Although most women only have very mild PMS symptoms, some women might have severe PMS symptoms that could affect their daily activities, like working or schooling. Severe PMS symptoms might be a sign of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) (Womenshealth.gov, 2018).
