Herbal remedies for PMS
There are several herbal remedies that may help to relieve PMS symptoms. Researchers have not shown convincing evidence that these remedies work better than a placebo (usually a sugar pill), and some can be expensive. However, some women have found them helpful.
- Evening Primrose oil – This may help symptoms like bloating, soreness of the breast and nipples and depression.
- Chastetree berry – This may help with PMS and irregular periods. It contains substances which resemble sex hormones so you should avoid it if you have a chance of getting pregnant or if you are trying to get pregnant, as there is a chance it may harm the developing baby.
