PMS may be a HUGE pain, but if there is a bright side (other than being pregnant again ) it means that you are generally healthy. Let's look at this a bit further.
Leading women's health advocates met today at a scientific forum titled, "The Menstrual Cycle is a Vital Sign," held at the New York Academy of Sciences. Co-sponsored by Rachel's Well, Inc. and the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research, the discussion was designed to raise awareness about the role of menstruation as a unique indicator of a woman's overall physical health.
At the center of the discussion was the importance of identifying health issues linked to the menstrual cycle, as well as clarifying any misconceptions. "The menstrual cycle is a window into the general health and well-being of women, and not just a reproductive event," said Paula Hillard, M.D., professor of obstetrics & gynecology and pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. "It can indicate the status of bone health, heart disease, and ovarian failure, as well as long-term fertility. Therefore, if a woman is not having her period, it is the first sign that something else could be going on."
