How to Reduce Premenstrual Problems

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a group of symptoms linked to the menstrual cycle. PMS symptoms occur 1 to 2 weeks before your period (menstruation or monthly bleeding) starts. For some people, PMS is just a monthly bother. For others, it may be so severe that it makes it hard to even get through the day. PMS goes away when your monthly periods stop, such as when you get pregnant or go through menopause.

Here are Tips to Reduce Premenstrual Problems

Get plenty of exercises

Physically fit women usually have fewer problems both before and during their periods.

Eat frequently and nutritiously

In the week before your periods, your body doesn’t regulate the levels of sugar, or glucose, in your blood as well as it usually does.

Swear off salt

If you stop using salt at the table and while cooking, you may gain less weight premenstrually, feel less bloated, and suffer less from headaches and irritability.

Cut back on caffeine

Coffee, colas, diet colas, chocolate, and tea can increase breast tenderness and other symptoms.

Don’t drink or smoke

Some women become so sensitive to alcohol’s effect before their periods that a glass of wine hits with the impact of several stiff drinks. Nicotine worsens low blood sugar problems.

Watch out for sweets

Premenstrual cravings for sweets are common, but try to resist. Sugar may pick you up, but later you’ll feel worse than before

Add more low-fat dairy products to your diet

They can lower your risk of problems
