What is PMS?
Premenstrual Syndrome: PMS is a disorder characterized by a set of hormonal changes that trigger disruptive symptoms in a significant number of women for up to two weeks prior to menstruation. Of the estimated 40 million suffers, more than 5 million require medical treatment for marked mood and behavioral changes. Often symptoms tend to taper off with menstruation and women remain symptom-free until the two weeks or so prior to the next menstrual period. These regularly recurring symptoms from ovulation until menses typify PMS, premenstrual syndrome. 
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) refers to uncomfortable physical and mental symptoms that occur before the onset of the woman’s menstrual period. Estimates of affected women range from 40 to 80%. About 5% of women experience symptoms that cause them severe impairment. PMS may start at any time during the years that a woman menstruates. The peak occurrence is in the 20s and 30s. Once PMS begins, the symptoms often continue until menopause. 
Birth Control Pills
Yaz, a new type of birth control pill, has been shown to be effective in reducing the physical and emotional symptoms of PMDD. It's the first oral contraceptive to be approved for this use.
There have been treatments offered by gynecologists such as the birth control pill, and that is a no-no. that is not going to treat PMS. It will make it worse, and we've seen that at the clinic. Women have been put on the pill by their doctors and come in saying they were crazy and out-of-control. The pill is another method that gives women more estrogen dominance. She doesn't need that. You can keep giving a woman more estrogen until she becomes crazy. Then it becomes so out-of-control that she might need to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital, and we've had that happen. [We love to hear this affirmed!]
excerpt from my paper on PMS
Natural Progesterone – The Cure We Need?
Synthetic Progesterones such as Provera and Megestrol are not the same as Natural Progesterone. Natural Progesterone is the same chemical structure as the progesterone your ovary produces. Provera and Megestrol are not the same chemical structure. They are patented chemicals made by pharmaceutical companies that are artificially altered and as a result have severe side effects that are clearly documented in the PDR or Physician's Desk Reference. 
Women and doctors are confused about PMS. They read in supposedly reputable books that PMS refers to a collection of symptoms that generally occur the 10 days before a woman's period and on into at least a portion of her period time, and that this period of time is the time that progesterone is "dominant". Therefore, PMS is due to progesterone. The mistake they make is to never measure for the progesterone. If they would, they would find that women with PMS are low in progesterone. The ovaries should be making the progesterone and they are not. These women are estrogen and cortisol dominant. (If you use natural progesterone) you will have an 85, 90, 95 percent chance of bringing your PMS symptoms under control. 
Over a decade ago, Dr. John Lee first published his startling conclusions about conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT): synthetic hormones don't work as predicted and, worse, they pose a health threat to women. His findings touched off a storm of controversy. But years later, research has proved him right. Now millions of women concerned about aging are looking for alternatives to HRT, and finding them in natural hormones, and Dr. Lee's effective, commonsense approach to restoring hormone balance. 
Dr. John Hargrove of Vanderbilt University Medical Center has[b] reported a 90% success rate.[/b] John Lee, M.D. has reported the best results have been obtained by women who gain several pounds of weight due to water retention during their premenstrual phase. He has used progesterone cream applied to the skin. 
Use of natural progesterone for PMS was popularized in the 1960s after publication of Dalton's groundbreaking work, The Premenstrual Syndrome, in 1964. In a subsequent book, this author specifically outlined the use of progesterone for PMS, and she later produced further research to support natural progesterone's role in the treatment of PMS. Dalton stated that "Progesterone is the treatment of choice for patients with severe symptoms which have resisted other forms of treatment, and for those who are at the end of their tether when first reporting for treatment." She also described PMS as an imbalance in the estrogen-progesterone axis; a relative deficiency of progesterone was held responsible for most of the symptoms women experience. Conversely, she stated that an imbalance in the direction of a relative estrogen deficiency gives rise to dysmenorrheal in many women. 
Menstrual cramps can result from a number of reasons. Endometriosis (benign tumors) as well as Fibriods are two known contributors to this menacing situation.
Birth control pills is one proven effective form of medication that can remedied this problem. Aleve and other pain relievers can also help.
Exercising as well as a well balanced diet are also recommended,
Ladies who suffer from this problem I honestly feel your pain and discomfort. I am one of you,
Don't wait till the last minute to deal with cramps. Start working on your body 2 days before your monthlies, if you are "regularly timed" every month--or at the slightest sign of imminence. You suffer less. Waiting till the end only increases your threshold of pain to unmanageable levels. Your "endorphins" (natural sensory pain killers) have worked overtime by now and are inconsolable. Nip it in the bud!!! Just one "push"----- from discomfort-----reach for the pain killers.
Hot water bottle in the lower abdomen and lower back. Or sit in a tub of warm water for about 15 minutes
Hot tea or coffee
Drink lots of liquids and avoid constipation/High fiber diet--Using the bathroom frequently helps ease tension
Eat less chocolate/sweets---------avoid hyperosmolarity(too much concentration of particles) in the blood at this time.
Birth control pills. Regulates hormonal imbalance---Last resort. Documented incidence of "less cramps" with BCPs
Pain medications----------- 2 Anaprox or Aleve every 12 hours religiously with one-time dose of 400-800mg of Ibuprophen/Motrin as an anti-coagulant (blood thinner) to make bleeding lighter and with less blood clots
Eat light---no heavy meals,--helps to prevent further vasoconstriction (narrowing) of the blood vessels around the reproductive organs. You feel less bloated.
Avoid stress and exercise more!!!!
For cramps, one thing your should do is exercise like go jogging, it helps to ease the muscle contractions and relax you. And stretching your abdominal area as well will work for the same reason. If you're just around the house and you still feel the cramps, try putting a hot compress (like a warm towel) over that area to relax your muscles. I like to buy the heat compresses from Thermacare. My mom would use prune juice as well, but I mean, it's going to feel worse before it gets better.
But if all that fails, you can always just take a medication like Midol of ibprofin (sp?) or something. I hear those work well.
