It amazed me to learn that a whoppin’ 15% of women don’t get PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome) symptoms!
According to WomensHealth.gov,
- PMS mostly affects women whoÂ are in their late 20’s and early 40’s.
- PMS occursÂ more often in women whoÂ have at least 1 child.
- 85% of women suffer at least 1 PMS symptom.
So, the 15% of women who don’t get symptoms are lucky because to put it plainly, PMS STINKS!
I suffer with theÂ symptom of irritability myself. Sometimes my husband even warns my 2 little boys that “mama’s monster” is about to come out so they better watch out… 🙂
But thankfully there are some things that the 85% of us who do suffer can do! The first thing would be to consult a healthcare practitioner who can get to the bottom of why you’re having PMS. Â It can mean your hormone levels are out of balance and it’s much more involved than most people realize. A functional medicine practitioner can help. In the meantime there are other things you can do!

I think it’s worth noting that women may want to think twice about some of those herbs, and evening primrose oil if they are trying/planning to get pregnant. Ditto to red raspberry leaf, another tried and true herbal remedy for women. Epsom salt baths can help relieve/reduce cramping similar to taking a magnesium supplement… and have the added benefits of quiet relaxation :).
Yoga, meditation and just generally taking the time to be in your body – tuning in and listening to what it needs….all very helpful in living with the monster! 🙂
Great advice, Lindsay!
