PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome)
PMS is very common and can be quite debilitating. Common symptoms include mood swings, depression, anxiety, anger, tension, irritability, joint pain, headache, bloating and fluid retention. These symptoms typically occur about a week before your period. One of the primary causes of PMS is the sharp decline in progesterone that occurs during the menstrual cycle if the egg is not fertilized. Taking progesterone can substantially reduce many PMS symptoms. Progesterone can be used in women who are still menstruating regularly and in perimenopause to control PMS symptoms. You do not need to continue suffering from PMS.
