Many women in their reproductive age experience transient physical and emotional changes around the time of their menses. For the majority of women, these symptoms are mild and tolerable. However, for a certain group of women, these symptoms can be disabling and may cause significant disruption in their lives. Around 3–9% of women having severe premenstrual syndrome seek medical attention. The general pattern of physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms occurring 1-2 weeks before menses and remitting with the onset of menses simply called premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some degree of PMS is experienced by almost 75% of women in their reproductive years [1,2]. PMS was first by Frank in 1931, but according to the modern concept it is named as premenstrual dysphoric disorders (PMDD) which is a severe form of premenstrual syndrome.
