    I can't believe it. Why is it that EVERY woman i have asked about PMS in the last two days says they do or did get PMS. I am sad that the quality of scientific study can be so poor. Goes to show how women need a Ministry of Women's Affairs but perhaps one that does a better job.

    Are you kidding me?

    Regardless if there is some mind altering brain function that happens during PMS or not, their body feels like shit. A number of uncomfortable physical things happen to the female body during menstruation, and anyone can get moody when they feel bad.

    True, everyone should be mindful of their own behavior, and being awful when feeling sick, injured, or even going through menstruation is still being awful. However women on their cycle should be given a little slack at least, they do feel awful, and some are worse than others.

    No matter what the time of the month, we should own our behavior. PMS is a poor scape-goat and I'm glad they're debunking it.

      Well, clearly, you're not someone that gets a switch in chemicals the week before your period like I do. I know it's not a myth because I do whatever it takes to feel better: exercise, eat well, sleep, and no matter what, I become irritable, so please don't say that it's a myth if it's something you haven't actually ever experienced personally
