So I was reading up on a couple studies about PMS. Is it a myth or is it real??
With the studies claiming that PMS is a myth, looked at the link of emotional reactions to the female cycle. Their studies showed that there was a small percentage of women who’s emotional state linked to their cycle, but the majority did not. So, if it is a myth, why did they just admit that a certain percentage of women were linked to PMS? So what they are basically saying is that majority of women in their study do not have emotional reactions to their cycle.
Under the symptoms of PMS are physical symptoms like headaches, bloating, cramping, joint pain, etc up to a week before the cycle begins. So even if you do take out the emotional link, is their still PMS, or is PMS still a myth?
I may not be more irritable before my period begins than I am all month, but I do feel more sensitive-like getting teary at feel good moments and cry over small stuff-also I crave fries with salt and chocolate (I usually do not like salty stuff or chocolate), and have cramps and blow up like a balloon.
Do you think PMS exists or do you believe it is a myth?
