PMS

Right girls, I know I'm not alone on this. Since having my two boys I have just the most dreadful PMS (and during my period too). I'm aggressive (but not violent), tearful and in tears, and also affect the mood of the whole house.

Life isn't easy as it is with my husband recently being made redundant and the general challenge of 4 and 2 year olds, but this needs to change. Anyone got any tips? I've been reluctant to see the GP as I think that they'll just prescribe antidepressants, but I'm at the stage where that might just be the best thing.

Helpful stories and advice please!

I took Agnus Castus (herbal) and it helped me an awful lot. The tincture tastes vile though!

I think you should see your GP though- you clearly have an awful lot going on at the moment and it sound like you maybe think there's more going on here than PMS? (sorry if I've interpreted your OP incorrectly). flowers for you, it just be very tough.
