Men and PMS
Did you think that PMS is only something that affected women? Think again! Men and PMS are actually connected in more ways than just one! (Of course, you might never get them to actually admit to it.)
First, a quick recap on what PMS really is. According to medical literature, PMS is a condition that affects women prior to the onset of menstruation. This limits the age bracket of women experiencing PMS from roughly 15 years of age to about 50. Women in menopause do no longer have to fear PMS. The fluctuating hormone levels that lead to the onset of menstruation also lead to the experience of PMS symptoms. Such symptoms, as men can attest to, usually involve bloating, acne, mood swings, general unhappiness, and a penchant for flying off the handle at the least provocation.
Yet there is another chapter in the story of men and PMS that is not as frequently reported: men get PMS, too! Of course, in this instance it is not referred to as premenstrual, after all, men do not menstruate. Nevertheless, they do experience hormonal fluctuations that lead to the same imbalances women have to deal with prior to menstruation, and as such they also have symptoms that are quite comparable.
The male cycle is thought to repeat every 30 to 35 days.
At that time the male hormones are recalibrated by the body to provide a level progression from that day forward.
Male PMS – for lack of a better term – does come with some of the same symptoms that are usually associated with the female version. Men will experience a bit of a weight fluctuation, hair and fingernails will suddenly grow just a bit more quickly, and tempers may flare a lot easier.
It is interesting to speak to men who may have suddenly experienced a temper flare up in the wake of a traffic problem, only to later on wonder whatever came over them. They act out of character, and nonetheless, at the time the physical acting out is the only means they can think of employing to get their points across. There is little doubt that such men are at a loss what could have set them off, and the odds are good that they will not even begin to think about male PMS.
Considering that in today’s society something as volatile as male PMS defies open discussion, it is not at all surprising that there are few studies that even tackle the monthly shift in hormone levels. Interestingly, many of the studies that are conducted, actually come out of the world of professional sports, where trainers and athletes are forever looking for that competitive edge, and already they have discovered that the right testosterone level can have a lot to do with being more aggressive, and therefore more likely to win during a contest. Men and women who wish to do away with the symptoms of PMS can largely rely on the same homeopathic means of controlling hormone fluctuations.
