Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) - Prevention
You can't prevent PMS. But there are things you can do to reduce your chances of having severe symptoms.
- Get regular exercise. It helps reduce pain and provide a feeling of well-being.
- Eat a variety of healthy foods, especially foods rich in calcium. Include whole grains, protein, low-fat dairy, fruits, and vegetables.
- Limit caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, and salt.
Reduce stress by managing your time well, getting enough rest, and learning relaxation techniques.
Quit smoking, if you smoke.
