Causes of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS)

Medical experts generally think that it may be a woman's response to her hormones (whether they are balanced or not), diet (there may be nutritional deficiencies), stress or lifestyle factors (there may be prolonged stress) that could be the underlying cause of PMS and as every woman is different, the level of PMS each woman experiences is also different.


While we do have some answers about pre-menstrual syndrome and know more about PMS than when it was first diagnosed over 50 years ago, the exact cause of PMS is sill not known.

While PMS is a recognised medical disorder, the underlying cause has not been really identified, but a variety of explanations have been given as to the reasons why PMS may occur.
