Light at the end of the tunnel

There is hope for me as treatment is available. I'm not keen on taking medication or druges, so was glad to see that The Mayo Clinic has listed out the complementary and alternative medicine for PMS.

just wondering - would going on the pill affect PMS at all?

and all this time i thought it was my woman's prerogative as childbearer and all round carer to feel down, used, baggage-y and short-changed on sleep, private time and respect!

I feel ya, sister!

mamasan, the Mayo Clinic site listed birth control pills as one of the treatment methods:

Oral contraceptives. These stop ovulation and stabilize hormonal swings, thereby offering relief from PMS symptoms.

PMS used to affect me some but seems to be worse lately. Sometimes, I wish I had a shell I can crawl into and not have to face the world!

Min, I used to suffer from very bad mood swings prior to my menses. For two months, I have been taking Cold Pressed Flaxseed oil, 2 teaspoon, twice a day with meal, mixed into half a cup of yogurt. I have to say I feel a great diff in the mood. This Omega 3 oil works the same way as Evening Primrose Oil (which you can also take for PMS), but I like flaxseed due to the fact that its not processed into a capsule or pill.

Thanks for the tip, JoMel. I've started taking Evening Primerose Oil capsules. Should work the same as flaxseed oil ya?

Thanks for sharing the link lenglui. Very inspiring poem.
