It is normal to experience some PMS (premenstrual syndrome) before and during your period. PMS is caused by the changes in your hormones throughout your monthly cycle and these symptoms are often clues that your period is on its way. PMS can start a few days before your period begins and continue through the first few days of bleeding. If you’re experiencing an overload of stress, emotions, and/or moodiness, prioritize your own needs and practice some self-care techniques.
