Pre-Menstrual Syndrome or PMS refers to a set of physical and psychological symptoms that a girl/woman undergoes in the week before and after – start of menstruation. The menstrual cycle lasts for 28 days and starts with ovulation or release of an egg by the ovaries. Throughout the cycle, there are changes in hormones released by the body. Towards the middle of this cycle (day 14), or a week later (day 21), some women start experiencing one or more symptoms that can last up to a week after menstrual bleeding (period) begins.
