PMS symptoms can make you feel cranky, but it’s no reason to feel guilty. Here’s what you can do about it.
So now we know that women are being judged all over the world. They are said to have low emotional sustainability. We often hear stories about cribbing and shouting women who we label ‘Fighter Jets’ or ‘Cruella’. No one wants to be labelled as one but its very hard to avoid such thing. Unless you are very strong headed and can manage your PMS well.
Now let’s fragment it and try to understand it on our body level. We all know that we have a hormone called estrogen. This little buddy goes away every month and lets another hormone, progesterone, take over the castle.
Now let’s imagine your husband spilled water on floor. On other days you might just look at him and he would clean it up or you yourself would clean it up. But with this progesterone acting in our head, it would make your husband’s action seem like a big mistake, and you can feel as if he accidentally broke a reservoir!
You shout at him. He is confused. He might protest. Well well. That’s it! It feels your husband is being mean. He has been doing this forever. Its just that you have always borne it. you start crying. You would cry until you feel it difficult to open your eyes.
If you have a great husband, then he would listen to you and understand that its not you who is speaking. But the problem is that not every husband is understanding and knows what’s going wrong with his wife. Result? Domestic fights, dissatisfaction – then one thing leads to another and you might get depressed or even end up breaking a relationship. You will be called names.
But after few days you feel guilty.
So ladies why not go to the root level and catch hold of this guy who has created a whirlpool in the life. I have observed my past PMS cycles and decided to beat it in a natural way. So here is how I tried to resolve this and had very good results.
I want to share from my experience in this forum because I know there are still many many women in India who do not even know why they are irritable. But small steps do make a difference.
Cheers Ladies! Stay happy.

Falling in love, marriage, a hidden secret, divorce. Despite all this, Vinita noticed her life was full of love that came in various unexpected shades!
“Aap jinke kareeb hotey hain, woh badey kush naseeb hotey hain…”
Just as Vinita was settling down into the cab seat, the driver put on music and the song started to play. It took her back immediately to that evening ten years ago, when Gautam had sung that very same song to her on the first evening they had met. She could remember every single detail of that evening so very clearly.

Periods and PMS come with pain, mood swings, and weight gain. But what if there was a way to not bloat as much every month? Here are a few ways to avoid it!
Periods and PMS come with pain, mood swings and weight gain. But what if there was a way to not bloat as much every month? Here are a few ways to avoid it!
Every month, we women, go through a phase where we end up feeling bloated and tired – all thanks to the incoming period alert. From body aches to headaches to water retention to mood swings, there is everything you experience right before your period. You are PMSing (Pre-menstrual syndrome). And just so you know, around 90% of the women go through PMS, so rest assured, it’s just a part and parcel or being a woman.
How is it that men know so little about menstruation but so much about PMS?!
“Are you undergoing PMS?” asked my friend during our one-hour long telephonic conversation, as I wondered why in any heated argument people always wonder whether I am on the Monthly Hormonal Rock and Roll or not. Bah! Seriously?
With more than twelve years since I got my first period, I have gone through my series of cramps, irritation and cursing of womanhood for this monthly menace. Looking for answers on the internet, asking my agony aunts and still having found no solution, I officially declared myself as a person who suffers from PMS twice in a month, with both the Pre and the Post Menstrual Syndrome. It doesn’t make sense right? To me, however, it does. I bloat, gain 2 kilograms of weight every month, begin sprouting acne and feel sleepy all the time – all of which makes me feel both sulky and irritated. (more…)
