Will I need clinical treatment for PMS?

If dietary and lifestyle changes don't give you sufficient relief or control, a wide range of clinical treatment options are available for severe PMS. Treatments range from the use of evening primrose oil for breast tenderness, to oestrogen patches or implants, which can help to suppress your ovarian cycle. You should contact your GP or a specialist clinic, and get advice from NAPS.
