What is Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)?

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a group of symptoms linked to a woman’s menstrual cycle. Symptoms usually occur one to two weeks before a woman’s period (menstruation) starts. For some woman, PMS is just a monthly bother, while for others it may be so severe that it makes it hard to get through the day. PMS goes away when the monthly period stops permanently, for example, when a woman becomes pregnant or goes through menopause.

Signs and symptoms of PMS

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) has a wide variety of symptoms, and it's estimated as many as three out of every four menstruating women have experienced some form of premenstrual syndrome. Symptoms tend to recur in a predictable pattern, but the physical and emotional changes experienced with PMS may vary from slightly noticeable through to very intense.

The list of potential signs and symptoms of premenstrual syndrome is long, but most women experience only a few of these.


8 Emotional and behavioural symptoms of PMS

  1. Tension or anxiety.
  2. Depressed mood.
  3. Crying spells.
  4. Mood swings and irritability or anger.
  5. Appetite changes and food cravings.
  6. Trouble falling asleep (insomnia).
  7. Social withdrawal.
  8. Poor concentration.

  5. Abdominal bloating.
  6. Breast tenderness.
  7. Acne flare-ups.
  8. Constipation or diaorrhea.

Common causes of PMS

Exactly what causes premenstrual syndrome is unknown, but several factors may contribute to the condition:

  • Cyclical changes in hormones. Signs and symptoms of premenstrual syndrome change with hormonal fluctuations and disappear with pregnancy and menopause.
  • Chemical changes in the brain. Fluctuations of serotonin, a brain chemical (neurotransmitter) that is thought to play a crucial role in mood states, could trigger PMS symptoms. Insufficient amounts of serotonin may contribute to premenstrual depression, as well as to fatigue, food cravings and sleep problems.
  • Some women with severe premenstrual syndrome have undiagnosed depression, though depression alone does not cause all of the symptoms.
