Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This…
I have PMS and a handgun…any questions? Have you ever felt this way? I know I have. In fact, I’m feeling this way today! Those of us with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome spend all kinds of time and effort trying to get our hormones regulated so that our ovaries will ovulate regularly, which will results in regular periods. Unfortunately, once everything gets regular, we can start experiencing regular PMS as well. As with most things related to PCOS, our PMS symptoms can be more intense than the symptoms of PMS for women without PMS. UGH!
So Now What?
I’m assuming that if you are having regular ovulation, periods and PMS, then you are already watching your diet and exercising. If not, then the first step toward aleviating your PMS symptoms would be to start eating a low carb, gluten free, dairy free diet, such as Whole30. You will also need to exercise regularly–if nothing else, taking a walk everyday would help you tremendously.
