Every single month from the first menses until the last, women undergo something called Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Anytime a woman is moody or easily upset, it is automatically assumed that she is PMSing. PMS has been said to hinder women from being in position of power because of the inability to control emotions. But let's analyze why women are moody during this period of time.
Each time a woman has a menstrual, she loses x amount of eggs. The eggs and the lining of her uterus which was form in preparation of implantation is shed during this time. The reason for this is because the eggs become dead tissue after failure to be fertilized thus needing to be discharged/buried. There are fluctuation and decreases of hormones to regulate this cycle.
Now, let's talk about death for a minute. When you lose someone to death, you often go through the stages of grief; anger, bargaining, depression, denial and than acceptance, in no particular order. Sometimes the stages of grief are repeated until the person is no longer grieving correct?
Okay, now think about what a menstrual cycle is. It is simple put the dying/ death of a piece of a woman. So each month, a woman loses a piece of herself. Many women do not realize this and the lost is definitely more often than not subconsciously known. Therefore, woman will go through the five stages of grief aka PMS.
So the next time a woman or you, if you are a woman, goes through PMS, just give them comfort...or chocolate. Chocolate always seems to help!
