Do women need to suffer from PMS blues?

Most women in this century will inevitably complain to have some forms of complaint before their periods. They will experience symptoms that are usually cylical about a week to just few days of having their menses.

Hormones are chemical messengers that are produced by organs that are sometimes far away from its place of actions. For example, ovaries produce estrogen and estrogen receptors are found in the breast and uterus. In addition to that, the progesterone is released by eggs that been released by the ovaries during ovulation and these hormones must work together to ensure that there is a delicate balance in the body. When the delicate balance of these hormones are affected, disease and symptoms arise.

A woman’s menstrual cycle works in a cyclical manner due to its needs to procreate and when ovulation is needed to release the matured eggs from its ovaries. Hence the main hormone that works during the first 14 days of the menstrual cycle is the estrogen.The later part of the hormonal cycle  meaning the latter 14 days of the menstrual cycle, the predominant hormone will be the progesterone. The adequate level of progesterone is responsible for the wellness of the women and especially so in the last 14 days of the menstrual cycle.
