PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome)

If you experience unpleasant and uncomfortable symptoms before and during your menstrual cycle such as bloating, depression, irritability and headaches, you are probably experiencing premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMS is a broad range of symptoms that temporarily disturb normal functioning. These symptoms may last from a few hours to many days. The types and intensity of symptoms vary in individuals.

There are no specific medications identified to treat PMS. However, the experienced obstetricians and gynecologists at Jefferson understand and can help you manage your symptoms.
