Gwen shares how maintaining a calendar helps her predict her PMS/premenstrual syndrome symptoms.

Gwen:
My calendar is very simple. I just write down the day that I start my menstrual cycle and I kind of just know in my head about when I can expect different things to happen. I am just a very aware person of my body. I know when I ovulate; I can tell when I ovulate, and again, having that awareness about what is going on helps me to keep track. Another thing is that as I have gotten older, my menstrual cycle, I used to have a very predictable 28 days cycle, and as I have gotten older sometimes my cycle has been shorter at times and so I have PMS. It is almost like I am running through the cycle more rapidly so I feel like PMS is occurring more rapidly, and when that was happening, when my cycle shortened, it was again very helpful to go back to the calendar. I kind of got now in the habit of doing it, and it helped me to see that it is still PMS, it is just I am not keeping track of it, and my cycles change, so it is occurring at a different time or it is occurring more frequently. It seems like it is occurring more frequently than I expect.

It happens sometimes that our menstrual cycle do have a difference in the way it occurs as age increases . It is due to the changes in the hormones and their lesser capability to work properly. I liked the article that you have put up.
