Risk Factors of Premenstrual Syndrome

PMS has been seen to target women falling into a certain pattern of lifestyle that includes:

  • Food: Increased consumption of certain foods like candy, pastries, salty foods and caffeine-rich drinks have been associated with higher incidence of PMS.
  • Depression: Pre-existing Depression or Anxiety Disorder tips the balance in favor of the woman getting PMS during her cycles.
  • Family History: Women with PMS running in their families are more susceptible to be affected by the condition.
  • Stress: Emotional tension is a significant pre-requisite for the rise of PMS in a woman.
  • Nutritional deficiency: Low level of certain nutrients like vitamin B6, calcium and magnesium in the body may also contribute to PMS.
  • Exercise: Lack of exercise or a sedentary lifestyle may also play a correlational role in PMS.
