Actually the mood swings normally happen a week before the actual periods. I track 21 days give or take a day or two from the period and just stay out of the way for that week unless she wants attention. A lot of times the problems come during that period and men don't understand why it's happening and end up making matters worse.

Mood swings, yeah. Being irritable, easily agitated or emotional, that's fine but there's a thin line between being pissy and being a bitch. I've known a lot of women that don't have mood swings & if they do, they know how to keep themselves composed. Most of them will tell you, having a period is no excuse for being a raving lunatic. You should see a shrink, there's probably some underlying reason for your inability to control your temper.

I would start with an obgyn before a shrink. There are many conditions that can cause worse then normal pms and mood swings. Hormones can be evil.


Seriously. I hate it when people blame their extreme emotional behavior on their cycle, pregnancy, or hormones in general. Like, seriously, take accountability for your actions.

I wonder if the "sweet bread" the OP is talking about is actual bread and not just a funky term they give cooked lamb organs-- to hide what you're really eating. Ex: Rocky Mountain oysters. :P

I'm also Canadian, but my local bakery sells a bread roll that's labeled as sweet bread, they also sell sweet buns. Just a sweetened bread product here, good for breakfast toast.

sweet bread is a loaf that's got cinnamon, sugar and coconut, and filled with cherries and raisins. The crust is coated with brown sugar. You'd kill people over it.


Sweetbread is the thymus gland/pancreas animal usually a lamb or a calf and its fried with butter...or at least that's what I was always told. There probably are loaves of bread that are sweetened and sold under the name Sweet Bread in your local bakery. I know at my work, we seasonally have some sweetened rolls that we make around Christmas time, but when I hear "sweetbread" I think of organs.


The have been studies done proving there are no mood swings associated with your period. If you act crazy on or before your period it's because you're just crazy in general. Therefore it makes more sense if she is pregnant.

What studies do you read anyways?! I'm a guy and I know for a fact that mood swings happen to girls on their period, mostly because I have a girlfriend who gets mood swings while on her period, thus your case is invalid :)

Everyone knows when you say "see your doc", the person calls up their PCP (primary care provider), who should never be surgeon. A surgeon dealing with this situation might end up with someone "cut[ting] a bitch". Then again that might be more preferable than sending above patient to me (aka internist) - ultimate solution: stat psych consult.

Oh, you know OP? You know this is how she acts on any given regular day? Wait a second, I think you're just making assumptions here and making yourself seem like a bitch. :)


Number 22, i hate to tell you but studies prove that the pms mood swing thing is a myth, so she's not really being a bitch. She's just being realistic. Op probably does have some more issues than just pms.

Haha, yeah, you're totally right. Hormone fluctuations have fuck-all effect on moods, and everyone's affected in the exact same way. [/sarcasm]

I'm still waiting for your sources and links to the literature on these "studies". Like pretty much every comment ever that invokes science and says "studies show X" you have no actual proof.

#143 - May I refer you to: "Mood and the Menstrual Cycle: A Review of Prospective Data Studies" - 2012

by Sarah Romans (MB, MD), Rose Clarkson (MD), Gillian Einstein (PhD), Michele Petrovic (BSc), Donna Stewart (MD, DPsych)


Google it.

Oh, you mean the study that didn't really have test subjects, but rather just took other studies and sort of made it work for their thesis, not even considering physical symptoms that could make women moody? Well, when you put it that way...

The problem with those studies is that they assume that all women will always react the same way to hormones, when in reality, that's not the case. Of course, if they had done a more exhaustive job, and taken women who are more prone to have PMS (let's say, women with higher hormonal levels), then maybe that study would be more telling.

So she's a psycho because her body is reacting to something she can't control. We as women really have no say in the way we react to situations when our hormones go crazy. Just yesterday I cried over a pot of hot water. I'm pregnant and not on my period but the hormones are the same. Do you think I wanted to cry about the water? No! But I sure as hell couldn't stop it. Trust me it's as annoying to us as it is to others.

my bff and I were 8mo pregnant when at McDonalds they gave us the wrong order and we broke down crying in front of the employee. I don't even like McD's and oh I wish I could so apoligize to that worker. Hormones are awful lil creatures that make us do evil things.

#32 really? You're saying we don't have control of our hormones? It's called self-regulation. Many many many women can control themselves, you can't speak for everyone. Pregnant or menstruating, doesn't matter.
This myth and excuse that so many women say when they're menstruating or pregnant is just so dumb.
And yes I'm a female

Yeah, it's pretty out of hand to throw plates around just because of PMS. I have PCOS and am a gyn. nurse, and know all about bad PMS. Most people just cry, get angry, or get depressed. The difference between being upset and throwing plates is that being upset is an emotion, which you can't control, but throwing plates is an action, which you can control.
