What can be done to stop the symptoms of pms.?

A few suggestions: The answer is somewhat counter intuitive. When you feel pms you don't feel like exercising, but exercise helps reduce the symptoms. Keep track of your period, knowing that the depressive symptoms are from pms helps take them in stride. Visit with friends to improve your mood, too.

Can exercise help relieve some of the symptoms of pms?

Can exercise help relieve some of the symptoms of pms?

Yes!: Exercise can give you natural pain relief. When we exercise, we make endorphins which act like "natural morphine." endorphins make us feel good. Also exercise helps us get rid of prostaglandins, the chemicals which causes uterus cramping. So getting up and getting moving 30-60 minutes every day is good for lots of reasons. Relieving period cramps is one of them. [more info in comments]. ...Read more

Could someone possibly experience symptoms of PMS but not have the period?

YES!: Most people consider a period to be when blood is lost from the lining of the uterus sloughing off, when a fertilized egg does not implant there at the proper time. Hormonal dysregulation and some imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain may bring on the symptoms of pms without necessarily having the uterus loose it's lining. So, they can be considered separate events under certain conditions. ...Read more
