During Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), do you found your driving manner to be more assertive?


I’m a very energetic bicyclist. Over the years, and I’ve formed an enthusiasm in struggling to keep up with my roommate Yin while she drives her cars. Often, during that time of the month, she frequently drives much faster than normal. On narrow roads, if I were riding in front of her, she would horn quite aggressively and overtake me. Your explanation is well appreciated.

Question about women with premenstrual syndrome?


Do all women have this problem, or is it uncommon? From what I've read, its not a disease, but rather its caused by hormone changes or something like that.
----------

Most women get it, but the intensity of it varies.
We all WISH it was uncommon.... however, it's not.

It's all just hormones, not a disease or anything. We get a bit pissy, crampy, bloated, sore, etc... it's not fun. Don't mess with a PMSing woman.

Some people are lucky enough to not have it so bad; some get it so bad that they need medication or birth control to make it better.  (+ info)

Premenstrual Stress Syndrome (PMS, also called Premenstrual Stress, Premenstrual Tension Syndrome, PMT, Premenstrual Syndrome, Periodic Mood Swing) is stress which is a physical symptom prior to the onset of menstruation. PMS should not be confused with dysmenorrhea, which refers to pain or cramps during menstruation.

PMS is exceedingly common, occurring in 75% of women of reproductive age during their lifetime. A more severe form of PMS is premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). This occurs in about 5% of women. Both are characterized by symptoms of mood swings, depression, anxiety and irritability that occur prior to menses, usually in the two week period between ovulation and menses. It is often accompanied by physical symptoms such as bloating and cramping.

Diagnosis and treatment

Diagnosis of PMDD differentiation from clinical depression and anxiety disorders.

Treatment usually begins with lifestyle modification. Reducing caffeine, sugar, and sodium intake may help. Supplements of vitamin B6 and calcium carbonate have been shown to help alleviate some symptoms. Exercise will help reduce depression and anxiety symptoms. Keeping a symptom diary will help cure sufferers to exacerbating and relieving strategies.

Prescription treatments include fluoxetine (Prozac), sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil), and citalopram (Celexa). While commonly described as the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, several drugs of this class (such as fluoxetine) have been demonstrated to increase the bioavailability of the neurosteroid allopregnanolone by altering the metabolic favorability of the reaction.

Traditional herbal treatments include Vitex (Chasteberry), Evening primrose (Oenothera Biennis), red clover and black cohosh[citation needed]. There is some clinical evidence that these do indeed remedy the symptoms of PMS.[1][2] [3] Herbal treatments may work by stimulating the pituitary gland, or by effects on dopamine or opioid receptors. A good dosis of vitamin B are also believed to assist with the symtoms.  (+ info)
