Symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)

There are over 150 different symptoms that have been identified as being associated with PMS.

The symptoms of PMS can be divided into five sub-groups (and while most women generally have symptoms of 1-2 groups, some women experience all the symptoms from all groups):


Interestingly, PMS symptoms are very similar to the symptoms of hypothyroidism.

In addition to this, studies have also shown that PMS symptoms also correlate to the effects of prolactin when it is injected into a healthy woman who does not experience PMS. This suggests that some women may be highly sensitive to their own prolactin levels or have higher than normal levels of prolactin in their blood.
