Premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, is one of the most common manifestations of hormonal imbalance, affecting over half of all women. But as recently as the 1980’s PMS was hardly recognized by the medical profession.
Today, PMS is still often misunderstood and mistreated. Unfortunately, conventional medicine tends to emphasize treatment of PMS symptoms rather than the hormonal imbalance that is the true underlying cause.
This is also the case with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), which is a relatively new diagnosis used to describe the most severe cases of PMS. Conventional doctors often treat PMDD with birth control pills or antidepressants that mask the symptoms, without ever asking why the woman feels so awful in the first place. These medications MIGHT be the ultimate answer, based on your personal presentation.
