How to beat PMS? | LifePress store

As many as 85% of women have symptoms of premenstrual syndrome every month during menstruation. Cramps, bloating, nervousness, anger, desire to quarrel are almost always present. Learn how to deal with PMS more easily?

We feel like donuts, we “bite”, and men hide in a mouse hole. Everyone knows the scenario. There is no cure for PMS, but with some treatments, lifestyle changes and natural remedies you can alleviate the symptoms.

Eat healthier

Too salty and heavy foods cause bloating, caffeine worsens irritability and anxiety, and alcohol causes depression. Also, avoid sugar, because it affects your mood. Try fruits, vegetables and grains seven days before menstruation.


Many women have managed to alleviate both the mental and physical symptoms of PMS with exercise. Although they claim that they do not have the energy then, they have to find it, because that is the most important time for exercise. Find an exercise that you enjoy and that “shakes” you. You can try dancing.

Vitamins and supplements

They are crucial for PMS, especially vitamins B6 and E, which reduce the production of prostaglandins, which affect the appearance of tension in the chest and the appearance of muscle cramps. In addition, it is recommended to take calcium with food or in the form of tablets. Women under the age of 50 do not need more than 1,000 to 1,200 mg of calcium. Magnesium also has a beneficial effect (in a dose of 400 mg per day), because it prevents fluid retention in the body, and thus the feeling of tension in the chest, and even “bloating”.


PMS is sometimes best controlled with herbs. Try primrose oil, ginger, raspberry leaf, dandelion or natural progesterone creams. Some women are also helped by hemp tea (vitex agnus) or evening primrose oil preparations.


It is very important that you get enough rest and sleep. You work every day to reduce stress. Try massages, yoga, meditation or even going out with friends and keeping a diary.

A few more solutions

If none of this helps, consult a gynecologist and look for some milder medications. Maybe he will suggest light therapy, a new method, which increases the level of serotonin, for a better mood.
