How can men help with PMS?

Men who support their partner, wife, work colleagues or friends can be crucial in helping them to come to terms with, and to control, the symptoms. Some men have difficulty understanding a condition which may be beyond their partner's control. So much of PMS suffering is kept within the four walls of the home. But NAPS points out that PMS can affect the whole family, not only sufferers but also husbands, partners and children.

The NAPS helpline offers advice to partners on PMS symptoms, and how to support a partner.
