Dealing with a woman who’s going through premenstrual syndrome or PMS can be rather tricky if you don’t have the right knowledge to help you during this time.
Now while coping with her can be quite challenging when PMS gets in the picture, it doesn’t mean that you can’t pull the whole thing off.
Here are a few things that I’ve picked up during my extensive research into the female psychology that you’ll surely find useful the next time she’s experiencing PMS…
A lot of guys tend to panic when they’re having the notion that their lovers are experiencing premenstrual syndrome. Sure just thinking about PMS can be quite harrowing for a man, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t help your partner through it.
You’ve also got to remember that you won’t be much of help either if you’re going to be more anxious compared to your partner when she’s having PMS.
Understand that she’s going through a rough patch.
Women are prone to experience mental, physical and emotional fluctuations during PMS because the balance of hormones in their bodies is disrupted during this time.
Don’t let your partner’s crankiness and mood swings get to you. It’s the hormones that are talking when she snaps at you and not her. Make sure you’re very understanding with her while at it, too.
Make her feel positive.
Interestingly, it’s the negative hormones in her body that are raising her stress levels through the roof when she’s having PMS. The best way to counter their effects is to promote a buildup of positive hormones to prevent the situation from getting worse.
Besides telling your lover that you’re with her all the way, you can also send her cute cards with positive messages, uplifting text as well as affectionate gifts that remind her you’ve got her back.
Giving her a nice massage is a great option, too.
Ask her how you can help her.
As a guy, you won’t have a single clue what she’s feeling when PMS strikes. Keep in mind to ask her how you can help her when it happens. Never assume anything because it might give her the idea that you’re not eager to be of assistance, which will just lead to disaster.
Give her some alone time.
If your partner tells you to leave her alone, do what she says. However, this doesn’t mean that you should avoid her completely. Keep in mind to check on her from time to time just in case. Just remember that this will all change in a few days.
