PMS symptoms are experienced 1-14 days before your period and may also persist into your period.
A majority of girls experience few or mild PMS symptoms. But different girls experience a different set of symptoms. So it’s totally normal if you don’t experience the same set of symptoms as your sister or friend.
The reason PMS symptoms vary and differ from girl to girl is that our bodies respond differently to the hormones that drive our menstrual cycle and the individual lifestyle choices we make.
Most girls will experience at least one symptom of PMS and it is usually not severe enough to interfere with your daily activities. So don’t worry! You can still do everything you usually do!
- Getting regular exercise
- Quitting smoking
- Reducing intake of alcohol
- Staying hydrated
- Getting a good night’s sleep
- Managing your stress
If you experience severe PMS symptoms or that it interferes with your daily activities, then please see your doctor.
