How to Handle Her PMS Mood Swings


Well, reading a woman’s mind is surely a difficult task. And, this task becomes practically impossible especially during her PMS (premenstrual syndrome) days. This syndrome is basically a group of symptoms linked to a woman’s menstrual cycle. It occurs a week or two prior to the monthly cycle. Symptoms such as headache, cramps and mood swings are the most common ones. But, men find it difficult to cope with these mood swings. Managing them requires a lot of patience and pampering. So, just stop looking for reasons behind these mood swings, and find out how can you help your partner in easing her pain.

Emotional support

The days of PMS are nothing short of an ordeal for her. Women may have to bear stomach cramps, headache, restlessness, soreness and other health problems. Well, we agree that not all women experience these problems. But, if your girl does, the least you can do is to support her emotionally. Try to understand what she is going through (or at least give an impression that you do understand). Whether you do something or not to ease her pain, understanding the trauma will make her feel good.

Be there for her

These days are like an emotional roller coaster ride for her, and you too can feel the jerks of it. She may suddenly opt out of a pre-planned lunch date or would not want to go out of the house. Instead of getting angry, understand her situation. Try your best to make her feel happy. And, if something still goes wrong despite your best efforts, do not let your ‘male ego’ stop you from apologising. Also, gifting chocolates, cards and flowers will surely help to lighten up her mood.

Do not pester her

Women get irritated easily during these days. They might behave badly or argue with you over petty issues. So, do not lose your temper; this reaction is quite natural. If she does not feel like talking about her mood swings, leave her alone for some time. Let her take her own time to get normal. Constantly questioning about her mood might just rub her the wrong way. So, be careful!

Pamper her

Well, the easiest way of dealing with your spouse's mood swings is to pamper her. A tight hug, a little peck on her cheeks and a relaxing back massage are the best ways to keep her relaxed and happy. Also, surprise her by ordering food from her favourite restaurant. These little gestures will surely pep up her mood.

Keep her busy

Well, the best way to deal with her mood swings is to keep her engaged. Involve her in activities which she likes. Take her out for movies or invite her friends. Your entire focus should be on diverting her attention from psychological and physical pain she is going through.

What not to do

  • Do not attribute her each tantrum to her periods; girls do not like to be reminded time and again about it.
  • Make sure you do not make her feel that you are bearing her during her periods. Constantly reminding her of your generosity and care is worse than not doing anything for her.

It is just a matter of few days. So, be a gentleman and show your woman that she means the world to you, especially during those days.
