Topics include: causes; symptoms; diagnosis; the role of diet and exercise; understanding a woman's menstrual cycle; coping with stress; vitamins, minerals, and oil-of-evening-primrose; the most effective medications and alternative therapies; psychotherapy; sexuality and PMS; support groups; and how to find an advocate for the fight help for PMS.
