About This Condition

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a poorly understood complex of symptoms occurring a week to ten days before the start of each menstrual cycle.

PMS is believed to be triggered by changes in progesterone and estrogen levels.

Symptoms

Many premenopausal women suffer from symptoms of PMS at different points in their menstrual cycle. Symptoms include cramping, bloating, mood changes, and breast tenderness tied to the menstrual cycle.

Healthy Lifestyle Tips

Women with PMS who jogged an average of about 12 miles a week for six months were reported to experience a reduction in breast tenderness, fluid retention, depression, and stress.1 Doctors frequently recommend regular exercise as a way to reduce symptoms of PMS.
