Premenstrual syndrome is a disorder of the second half of the menstrual cycle, increasing in frequency as women approach their 30’s and 40’s. Symptoms can be physical (bloating, water retention, breast tenderness, constipation, abdominal cramping and muscle aches) and emotional (fatigue, depression, irritability and weepiness).

Many treatments, including traditional medications and alternative therapies, are available to lessen the symptoms associated with PMS.
