Man and PMS

Women and men each have monthly hormone cycles, with estrogen and testosterone levels fluctuating. A woman’s hormonal cycle is clearly marked in red by the arrival of our periods every month, punctuated sharply by multiple precursor symptoms.

Interestingly, a study published a few years ago shows that the majority of men claim to suffer from a range of symptoms most usually associated with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). The cause? Most often a sudden fall in testosterone – the hormone responsible for sex drive, sperm production and muscle tone. A man’s cycle isn’t marked with such obvious red checks as a woman’s, but that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have his period! It’s just invisible.

PMS affects everyone differently, and varies in its severity. Some common symptoms include:

- tension (which will make people around him tension as well)
- stress (displays through his everything-is-so-wrong face)
- anxiety (eg: follow up on works NON STOP)
- mood swings (which I think results in sudden raise of voice etc)
- increased emotional sensitivity (he's nice to you now but change within seconds)
- changes in libido (erm, not sure, need to ask his wife :P)

So guys, dont complain when your female partners are having PMS. I think we all are the same ;)

p/s: I'm refering to someone in specific, not my hubby nor my father.. Hope you know who! :P
