Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) / Tension

Another thing that young people wonder about is PMS, premenstrual syndrome, which may occur in the week before menstruation. Hormones in the body can affect you both physically and mentally. You might feel irritated, restless, sad, angry or exhausted. You may also experience pain in your body, for example in your breasts, stomach or head. Breasts may become hard, lumpy, and tender. You can have a feeling of fullness in breasts, abdomen, face and feet because of water retention and weight gain, which can range from 1 to 5 kg. All these are caused due to excessive enzymes produced in the body. These symptoms resolve rapidly with the onset of menstruation.

There is huge variation when it comes to the way PMS manifests itself, but for some people it can be a major problem in life. Some people may also experience severe headaches during ovulation.
