MIND your hormones
What actually causes PMS?!
Show Notes

We've all experienced some form of PMS before! It's soooo common but that doesn't mean it's NORMAL! Moderate to severe PMS is the result of a hormonal imbalance.

Here's what we get into:

  • You produce estrogen in your follicular phase (the phase after your period)
  • You produce progesterone in your luteal phase (because ovulation creates progesterone & your luteal phase is after ovulation)
  • Progesterone declines midway through your luteal phase if you're not pregnant & this drop in hormones  causes your period to come.
  • Moderate to severe pms is from imbalances in the luteal phase. Specifically estrogen to progesterone imbalance. 
  • When you have PMS you experience a sharp decline in progesterone 3-5 days before period rather than a gradual decline.

A FEW SIGNS OF LOW PROGESTERONE:

  • Pre period spotting
  • Short luteal phase
  • Cervical mucus week before your period
