The Guide to Understanding and Treating PMS
This is the book that introduced the world to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), proving that it is a real - and treatable condition. In this latest edition, the author introduces PMS to a new generation of women. Fully updated, the highlights include: how PMS affects school performance, especially in teenage girls; information on contraception options for women who may respond badly to the Pill; how PMS was hijacked by psychologists, and the pros and cons of this development. Dr Dalton also addresses the whole range of possible treatments - from self-care methods such as the three-hourly starch diet and relaxation techniques to the newest medical options. She even includes a chapter for men, to help them understand and support their partners who suffer from PMS.
