Walking away from premenstrual syndrome

Moderate aerobic exercise has been shown to improve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or premenstrual tension (PMT), by modifying cyclic hormone levels. In a recent study, estrogen and progesterone levels were monitored mid-cycle and during the premenstrual cycle in over 50 PMS sufferers, who either took up regular exercise or remained sedentary. After 24 weeks, the exercising women reported less menstrual pain and water retention, a decreased sense of loneliness, less crying and fewer skin blemishes. These findings correlated significantly and positively with reduced late luteal phase ovarian hormone levels, suggesting that we can briskly walk away from PMS and towards healthier hormone balance.1
