PMS in itself is a mean thing many women have to go through month after month (& some would say it’s mean for our partners too). Annoying and/or painful symptoms and I don’t think there is a woman out there who would say she enjoys the whole menstruation things. It’s part of life and we deal with it.
It never comes out more frustrating or annoying when either you are hoping that you are NOT pregnant or hoping that you ARE pregnant. As some sort of funny (or cruel) joke, life has decided that symptoms of PMS has to be wildly similar to very early pregnancy symptoms. We have the lovely hormones progesterone and estrogen to thank for that. Condom break, birth control mix up, or trying to conceive — the confusion over whether you will be greeting your monthly visitor in a few days or will be greeting your newborn in 9 months is annoying!
