PMS symptoms can make you feel cranky, but it's no reason to feel guilty. Here's what you can do about it.
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.

If you want to get back to work after a break, here’s the ultimate guide to return to work programs in India from tech, finance or health sectors - for women just like you!
Last week, I was having a conversation with a friend related to personal financial planning and she shared how she had had fleeting thoughts about joining work but she was apprehensive to take the plunge. She was unaware of return to work programs available in India.
She had taken a 3-year long career break due to child care and the disconnect from the job arena that she spoke about is something several women in the same situation will relate to.
More often than not, women take a break from their careers to devote time to their kids because we still do not have a strong eco-system in place that can support new mothers, even though things are gradually changing on this front.
No law in the country recognises enabling the rapist to walk free after marrying the survivor. However, in reality, it is something that families and communities often push for.
In the same week where the Delhi High Court on Wednesday, 11 May, saw a split decision on the constitutionality of the marital rape exception, another equally reactionary decision was handed by a divisional bench of the Supreme Court when they set aside the conviction and sentence of a man who had repeatedly raped his 14 year old niece
The facts of the case are simple. The accused, K Dhandapani, enticed his 14 year old niece with the promise of marriage and raped her several times. The family came to know of the offence when the girl became pregnant, and a case was lodged against him under the Protection of Child from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012. After trying his case, in 2018, the Sessions Court found him guilty on all three counts, and convicted him and sentenced him to 10 years rigorous imprisonment. The accused appealed to the Madras High Court which upheld the conviction and the sentence in 2019.
The girl gave birth in 2017, before the case came up in court. Despite the pending case against him, he continued to have sexual relations with the girl, and she gave birth to her second child at the age of 17.
