PMS Awareness Week in 2004

Empowering men as well as women is the theme of PMS awareness week 2004, beginning on September 13 2004.

Men and PMS
2004 PMS Awareness Week will focus on men. Too many men are poorly informed about menstrual health. In their relationships and at the workplace men often find hormone related ill-health episodes difficult to deal with.

Many relationships enter the “at risk” category during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle when PMS symptoms become evident. NAPS receives many calls for help from men who want to support their partner but are poorly prepared for understanding hormonal ill-health, and how they can help.

Notes to editors:
NAPS are the organiser of national PMS Awareness Week from 13 - 17 September. PMS comprises approximately 150 different physical and emotional symptoms, occurring between ovulation and the start of a period. Women may suffer symptoms in varying intensity each month. Most symptoms are anxiety, depression, irritability, aggression, and loss of concentration.
