What type of PMS are you?
Eat a Snickers - you're not you when you have PMS. My friend could say something like this if I could climb the walls again in the days before my period….
Typical Type A (okayyyy and Type C a bit too) in my case….
Did you know that there are different types of PMS?
Depending on the symptoms you have in the week before your period, you can assign yourself to one or more types. This subdivision not only helps you to better understand what is going on with you and your body - you can also do something about the symptoms!
Table of contents:
PMS type A(nxiety) – the moody
PMS type C(arvings) – the very hungry caterpillar
PMS type D (epression) – the sadness
PMS type H(hydration) – the bloated one
PMS-O (ther) – the other
PMS-T (otal Overall Symptoms) – the all-rounder
1. PMS type A(nxiety) - the moodySymptoms: 20-30% of all women are more sensitive than usual before their period. Your PMS shows that you are emotionally unstable. A cute dog picture will make you cry - a wrong word will make you upset.
Self-doubt, fear of the future or fear of loss are also common with this type of PMS.
Cause: Why women are highly sensitive during this time has not yet been fully clarified. One reason could be the hormone fluctuations during the female cycle. An excess of estrogen together with a lack of progesterone is particularly often mentioned as a possible cause.
Help: A balanced diet rich in vitamins.
In addition, you can try chaste tree (after consulting your gynecologist), vitamin B6 (found in avocados and legumes), chamomile and lemon balm tea (have a calming and balancing effect).
Make sure you get enough sleep & reduce stress with the help of relaxation exercises or a walk (vitamin D).
2. PMS type C(arvings) – the glutton caterpillarSymptoms: Hunger!!! Shortly before your period you would like to put your chair right next to the all-you-can-eat buffet. Cravings for sweets and unhealthy foods are signs of PMS type C.
Cause: Due to the hormone imbalance, your blood sugar level also fluctuates. As a result, your body needs sugar. The binge eating is usually accompanied by fatigue, headaches and dizziness.
Help: Vitamin B3 stabilizes blood sugar. Vitamin B1 and B12 help the metabolism & burn carbohydrates. Eat a little something every 3-4 hours. Distract yourself from hunger - for example with a walk or a visit to the cinema.
3. PMS type D (epression) – the sadnessSymptoms: Unlike PMS type A, your mood does not fluctuate, but is constantly in the basement and meets there with your self-confidence. Additional problems such as poor memory, confusion and insomnia also come with this type of PMS.
Cause: Here, too, the cause of type D is the opposite of type A: a high progesterone level paired with a low estrogen level. With this combination, the stress hormone adrenaline is also increasingly released, while the production of the happiness hormone dopamine is neglected. Stress and a lack of nutrients can also lower your estrogen levels.
Help: Vitamin D & Calcium. Additionally foods containing phytoestrogens (soy, lentils, fennel, oats) & chocolate for serotonin production. In addition, sport and exercise can help to regulate the hormone balance and lift your spirits - resort to endurance training such as cycling and swimming.
4. PMS type H(hydration) – the bloated oneSymptoms: The “H” in this type of PMS stands for “hyperhydration” and that's what's on the agenda too: you feel bloated, have heavy legs and just generally feel “fat” and bloated. In addition, 85% of women with this type of PMS suffer from hypersensitive or tender breasts.
Causes: As with type A, one cause could be the unequal ratio between estrogen and progesterone. Estradiol (a type of estrogen) is primarily responsible for water retention. This hormone promotes water retention in the skin and tissues, widens blood vessels and thus lowers blood pressure. In addition, your body produces serotonin to counteract high estrogen levels. This hormone has additional effects on our blood vessels by making their walls more permeable and thereby promoting water retention.
Help: Magnesium reduces water retention in the body. Drink still water and avoid coffee and alcohol as well as excessive salt. Celery, rice, asparagus and juniper help you with natural “drainage”. In addition, an aroma wrap can help you get water out of your tissues.
Combination Types:None of the above key symptoms suit you? Or do you have the feeling that several apply to you? Then you might also be PMS type O or type T:
PMS-O (ther) – the otherYou don't recognize yourself in any of the guys? Talk to your doctor about your unique symptoms to find out the best treatment option for you!
PMS-T (otal Overall Symptoms) – the all-rounderYou just thought to yourself while reading: Check, check and double check? Then you are probably a mixed type. The good thing: at least you now know what causes your symptoms and can do something about it accordingly! The most important thing is: Don't be too hard on yourself! If you have a craving for a piece of chocolate – go for it!
