Premenstrual syndrome, which causes people (and those around them) to feel miserable before and around their period, seems to be associated with a relative deficiency of several hormones, including progesterone and PGE1. It is worth allowing the treatments 3 months to work, as they can be very helpful but may take a little time to kick in.
Vitamin B6 and magnesium
Evening primrose oil
Take evening primrose oil 3,000 mg a day. After 3 months you can take it just the week before you expect your period. Use only brands that say “Efamol” (a distributor used by several brands) or Barleans on the label, as quality control is very important for this nutrient. If it is too expensive, you can substitute borage oil 3,000 mg (not as researched, but may have the same components as primrose oil) and any respected company’s brand is OK. These oils raise the PGE 1 hormone and decrease moodiness.

Natural progesterone cream
Ask your holistic physician to prescribe a dose of 10-50 mg of natural progesterone cream, which is applied to your skin twice daily during the ten days before you expect your period.
