Types of PMS

Within this constellation of symptoms, four main

types of PMS have been identified. While some women fall into one

group, it’s not unusual to be a member of two, three, or even all

four groups.

  • PMS-A: Anxiety-type

    symptoms such as irritability, nervous tension, and mood swings.

  • PMS-C: Cravings for salty or sugar-laden

    foods, fatigue, and headache.

  • PMS-D: Depression, or the sudden onset

    of sadness and crying spells as well as memory loss and confusion.

  • PMS-H: Hydration, which, if not satisfied,

    can lead to bloating and water retention, weight gain, breast

    tenderness and swelling of hands, feet, and ankles.

The most severe form of PMS is called premenstrual

dysphoric disorder (PMDD) which affects about 3 to 8 percent of

all women. This is marked by severe depression, irritability, and

tension before menstruation. In rare cases, delusions and hallucinations

also occur.
