Abstract

  Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a collection of emotional symptoms related to a woman’s menstrual cycle, with or without the presence of any physical symptoms. While most women of child-bearing age report having experienced physical symptoms related to normal ovulatory function, medical definitions of PMS are limited to a consistent pattern of emotional and physical symptoms occurring only during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. PMS is particularly common in the younger age groups, thus representing a significant public health problem in young girls. There is a need for health and educational authorities need to recognize the problem and provide appropriate support for female students with premenstrual disorders.
