Are women really PMS'ing?
February 28, 2007 8:31am CST
I've heard that when a woman is about to get her period,she becomes very moody, gets angry easily, and even depressed by the smallest thing. Is this really true? Are you girls more sensitive during this period? Im asking this coz, this morning, suddenly my gf is telling me that i don't love her and said that she's sad, and didn't really want to kiss me. I'm wondering if this is all because of her PMS'ing or in a normal time, she might react t the same way.. Can you girls give any tips on how your mood is during those period?

Unfortunately, it's true :( Sometimes I find myself behaving like Jekyll and Hyde. One minute I'm happy, next I'm sad/angry. It's like an emotional roller coaster. I try to keep my emotions in check during this period but sometimes it's hard and it seems like every single small thing gets on my nerves. Just give your girl some time and be understanding. Just think..you wouldn't like it too if you had to bleed every month. Know what I mean? The best thing you can do is just be there for her. Offer to give her a back or foot rub/massage, bring her hot tea, etc. That helps. If she says crazy things like "you don't love me", blah, blah..just assure her that you do.

I can't speak for other women, but a week before and during that time of the month, I am generally a basket case. My hormones are not kind to me. I get angry about things that generally don't bother me, cry at the drop of a hat, and hate my body. On top of this I'm cramping, headachey, bleeding like a freakin' sacrificial lamb (sorry for the visual) and just really not in the mood to put up with the bullsh*t that I normally suffer in silence. In short, I'm crabby and better off left alone. My advice to you is to just be supportive, ask her if there's anything you can do for her to make her feel better, don't mention PMS, assure her that you love her, and then give her some space until she calms down. If this lasts longer than a week, then something's up.
