Editor’s Note: Before the article starts, tell a little story from Dr. Clove’s group.
[Looking for Xiao Hong.] is a stalk in our small circle. If anyone has a headache and brain fever (mostly dysmenorrhea), he will ask for a [ibuprofen], and Xiao Hong can hand over one at a time.
Therefore, everyone laughed and said TA had mastered the physiological period of all women in the company.
What’s the use of mastering this?
Little fart child, it’s of great use. Let’s look at what PMS is first.
Dear sisters and sisters, do you feel uncomfortable, uneasy and upset before menstruation comes every month?
There is also a proper noun for this state of confusion and maddening, which is called premenstrual syndrome, which is what we mentioned earlier [PMS].
According to statistics, at least 85% of women have suffered from PMS. Experts also believe that this [disease] is a [difficult and complicated disease] and do not know what causes this series of physiological and psychological changes.
However, a recent study from Sweden claimed that PMS may be related to increased sensitivity to a hormone called tetrahydroprogesterone.
This hormone will regularly harass you at the same time every month, which can cause you anxiety, depression, difficulty in concentrating, increased feeling pressure, easy excitement and anger, large mood swings, sleep disorders, lack of spirit, and even the activities you loved in the past cannot arouse any interest.
These are mild PMS. About 5% of women’s symptoms will be very serious and can be upgraded to premenstrual dysphoria (PMDD). PMDD will not only cause damage to women’s health, but also cause serious adverse effects on their families, careers and interpersonal relationships.
Do you think PMS women need to hide?
Well, Xiao Hong, who has mastered the physiological period of the whole company, successfully avoided PMS attacks.
PMS is so annoying, do you need treatment?
If you need treatment or not, you can learn from Xiao Hong. Take a small notebook and record it first.
During the PMS period, your psychological feelings and physical conditions are listed in order of obvious degree. Record for at least two months so that doctors can have a clearer understanding of the symptoms you experience and their patterns.
Remember, the doctor can judge whether it is serious, whether it needs drug treatment, or psychological counseling according to the situation you describe.
There are tricks to fight the annoying PMS.
1. Drugs: Antidepressant or anti-anxiety drugs
For some women with PMS, especially those with severe PMS, taking appropriate drugs regularly on those days of the month can combat severe mood swings and depressive symptoms.
Of course, this medicine cannot be taken/taken indiscriminately by oneself. It needs to be purchased and used under the guidance of the doctor and with the doctor’s prescription.
Exercise is the best way to relieve stress. Choose one of your favorite sports: running, yoga, square dancing, etc., which can help you stabilize your moody mood and relieve depression and puzzling stress.
3. Cognitive therapy
This therapy focuses on discussing and understanding the symptoms you are facing and is a known and effective PMS treatment.
4. Contraceptive pills
Yes, contraceptives also have certain effects on relieving PMS. If there is no pregnancy plan for the time being, consider contraceptives.
Step 5: Eat a balanced diet
One crayfish meal cannot be solved, two meals, two meals cannot be solved…
Of course, this is a joke. If it works for you, you can also try it. Healthy diet and balanced nutrition are important means to improve PMS.
Step 6: Get plenty of sleep
Some studies have shown that most women who sleep irregularly have more serious PMS symptoms and much greater emotional fluctuations.
Therefore, in those days, be nice to yourself and have a good sleep.
Inviting three to five friends, gathering for a meal, running for a walk, climbing a mountain and pouring out their troubles can also improve the symptoms of PMS.
8. Other methods that may be effective
Supplementing sufficient calcium, taking folic acid, fish oil and bean products, and reducing the intake of salt, sugar and artificial sweeteners may be helpful to improve PMS.
In fact, understanding a woman’s physiological period is far more than avoiding PMS.
We’ll invite @ Xiao Hong to talk about it next time.
