Unaware of link: I do not know of any link between having an abortion and subsequent alleviation of pms, though there may be some kind of hormonal connection of which I am unaware. Your gynecologist may be able to give you more insight into whether or not there is some connection often or at least known to have been sometimes experienced by others. Seems at least to have been good for you. ...Read more

Pms (premenstrual syndrome) or pmdd. Which is worse?

PMDD: There is a spectrum running from no symptoms, through pms to really severe pmdd (premenstrual dysphoric disorder). With pmdd women complain of feeling like a different person, they have a really short fuse and don't even like themselves. Treatment is with an antidepressant (ssri) starting midcycle and just taking it until the start of the menses. This acts as a mood stabilizer. ...Read more

I am convinced that at this moment Maxalt (rizatriptan) not working. My head feel so much worse. It hurts to move it, just to walk. Does Maxalt (rizatriptan) not work when PMS?

I am convinced that at this moment Maxalt (rizatriptan) not working. My head feel so much worse. It hurts to move it, just to walk. Does Maxalt (rizatriptan) not work when PMS?

Resistant migraines: Maxalt (rizatriptan) should work during PMS, but sometimes headaches are harder to treat during this time. Many people find it helpful to use ibuprofen and maxalt (rizatriptan) at the same time. Hope that helps.

Since these items require prescriptions, and are not available in your "vitamin store", you need to discuss with your physician.

For 2 wks, pms-like cramps in lower right side with back and leg pain on that side. Off & on, worse throughout day, worse when sitting. What is this?

Several Possible: Abdominal cramps have many reasons, However, when they are localized to the pelvis and one side, then the concern increases about an ovarian cyst or other pelvic issues. A gyn exam and vaginal ultrasound is very helpful to eliminate problems that need to be treated and/or followed.

I am 36, I have had three children and have been off of birth control for a yr. My PMS and periods have gotten a lot worse. Is this normal ?

I am 36, I have had three children and have been off of  birth control for a yr. My PMS and periods have gotten a lot worse. Is this normal ?

Yes: PMS is uncommon in teens and tends to increase with increasing age. Pills make it better in 1/3 of cases, worse in 1/3 of cases, and don't change it in 1/3 of cases. They do make periods shorter and lighter with less cramping so periods get worse when pills are stopped. Hope this helps. ...Read more

"8/28 plan b. 9/6 period start, 9/9 pms/pregnancy symptoms start and gotten worse without easing. Could this be from the plan b, or what should I do?

"8/28 plan b. 9/6 period start, 9/9 pms/pregnancy symptoms start and gotten worse without easing. Could this be from the plan b, or what should I do?

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more
