why is it that women can't control their PMT behaviour ? Women know that once a month this is going to happen...So why all the drama ? I'm sick and tired of women using this as an excuse for irrational actions..Do they know what affect this has on their partner and those closest to them ? It seems to me that women don't feel the best at this time so do their best to make sure all those arund them feel the same,,,or am i missing something ??????

whether the discomfort is real, imaginary or even just an excuse, PMS is a fact of women's lives. Some may not behave as others do, but it is something they have to face and contend with unlike us men. Personally, extending to them a little understanding is not too much. Anyway it is only a temporary malady or excuse as the case maybe, it doesn't last forever. That's what makes them women, they are different. Reacting negatively, my reactions may be worse than the syndrome itself, don't you agree? My thinking is, let them behave like women and let us behave like men.

What is PMT? Isnt it PMS??? Now, have you ever for once just considered that women are suffering from a medical condition? I would love to see a man go through half of what a woman goes through!!!!!!!!! You should help the person that has PMS, and if you know how that person is going to act a certain time of the month, be a MAN and help her out, and try to keep her stress free, and maybe offer to cook, take her out, give her a back rub, and the list goes on and on!!! Try helping, insteading of complaining

Come on. Even you know that it's used as an excuse more often than it should be. Men should not start doing stuff for women who act up especially badly and treat them badly and blame it on PMS - ever heard of Pavlov's dogs? That's basically psychologically training the chicks that complaining and maltreating the guy = reward.

My goodness, seems like you've got one foot in your mouth, and the other on shaky ground. PMS is a physiologic state of being that you must live with unless you find an island to hide on, and considering that you think its an excuse, not a medical condition, then I have little wonder or doubt as to why you feel you need to hide...so, why should a woman who does not feel her best - cater to those who are believing she's making excuses for her irrational behavior - of probably refusing to cater to you?

Clearly you are not a woman yourself. especially since you call it PMT when it is actually PMS. Maybe you should try it sometime and see what we really go through. On at least one set occasion EVERY month we have to experience a change in hormone levels which leads to alterations in our moods, our emotions, as well as our pain levels. You try dealing with the sickness, the nausea, the horribly intense cramping, the terrible back pain, the aching, the sorenes... and various other pains and ailments. You're right that we dont feel the best at this time but it is by no means our intention to make others suffer as well. That is a male judgemental stereotype. and yes we know the effect it has on our partners and others but do these same people understand the effect it has on us? As a male you will NEVER fully understand so please do not mock us for what we have to go through. Remember it was by no choice of ours.

I grew up with four sisters and have seen what it can do to them. I am happy and so should you that we do not have to go through this every month. BTW isn't there a certain thing out there called biorhythm which can also affect men?

Fortunately for you, you grew up around a bunch of girls. I say this because my husband grew up with 5 sisters (most of them older), and he is actually quite understanding and sensitive about the subject. If he ever said to me "Oh, you must be PMS'ing", I'd definitely give him what for!! LOL

First off, it's PMS. Not PMT. Secondly, I would say that 9 times out of 10, it's idiot men who say "Oh, it must be THAT time of the month." What the h*ll kind of comment is that for you to make, anyway? You want to get a foot shoved up your a$$? Some women might use this as an excuse, because this does have an affect on their bodies- quite literally. They suffer terrible cramps, among other ailments. Which are NOT fun, by the way. So they get easily irritated. No, this is not an excuse by any means. But sheez! If you don't want to deal with it, then freakin' leave!!! If you're paying attention, you'll be more aware of when she's going through this, and what it does to her. Then you can be more understanding. Maybe express to your girlfriend/wife/whatever that her behavior has you concerned or upset. She might just TRY to be less of a pain in your a$$.

Careful there kitty or you might be told you are suffering from it yourself LOL I swear males just do not understand, if they even felt the pain or affects for five minutes of some of the things females do they would kill themselves.

its totally misunderstanding of yours; you should not comment like this; it is very pain full for ladies for these three days. how frequenly men will suffer from pain? hardly none; but woman has to suffer from these periodic pains, please respect the woman.

If you were a woman,you would know.women are very uncomfortable and some have severe pain so dont talk unless you really know what others are going through.

Well first of all you would have to be a woman to understand what we go through. It is not all just because we want to be mean...or hurt others..or take it out on men...It can actually be a hard time...We go through bloating...pain...headaches...cramps...tiredness...you name it..and each woman is different. How they deal with this is different too. So when you say ..you are missing something...yeah...you are not a woman!

Til men can stop acting like pigs, grow up. Be men. Maybe women will learn to control their pms behavior. For one day it would be nice to see men suffer with this, lol. Now that would be nice, then men would shut the heck up about this. Laddies don't you hate it when men are able to predict when it's here or coming, all because our moods change. Hum, If men are allowed to get in a bad mood, so can we. Men get upset because they are jealous, because we can do it better, lol.

You are missing a few things. First off she does not have control over changing emotions when suffering from PMS. You call gaining five pounds of water weight, having your pants be tight for a week,having cramps, a headache and some male whining at you that you are making it all up and you are just using it as an excuse drama? That is not drama on anyones part but the males. If you know when your better half is not doing well you should be more aware of your actions and be a bit more sympathetic. I am going to stop now so you do not accuse me of overreacting and say it must be my time of the month.

my dear friend, whenever women in P.M.T all that they need is about attention to their selves especially from the closest person. I know they having this feeling in every month and still they cant handle it very well. coz PMT related with sense, feeling, and hormone which we also know these things cant be regulate by our own selves. PMT is the sensitive time for every women, i m sure coz i also belong to them. they also know the affect of their partner in this situation but they helpless

You're definitely missing something. Women that use it as an excuse are one thing, but it's a serious thing and very real. If women have that much of a problem with it every month, they should see a doctor about it and not just use it to justify every irrational action they make. They have many treatments available, but that still doesn't give you the right, as a man who could never possibly understand, cast your opinion about as they should control themselves. Try to understand the issue first.
