Premenstrual syndrome, female hormones and ME/CFS


SKU: #168 Category:


PMS – otherwise known as PMT or premenstrual disorder – can play havoc with a woman’s monthly cycle and make life a misery. What can women do to make themselves more comfortable during this time?

This leaflet summarises what we currently know about PMS, how it can overlap with ME/CFS, and the various treatment options that are available.

The information draws on guidance to doctors from NICE, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the National Association for PMS.

As is the case with all current MEA leaflets, readers can click on interactive links that will take them to other sites of interest; please don’t forget to return to the MEA page!
