WHAT can I do to get on top of my PMS? - Beth, by email

A SIMPLE lifestyle changes can make all the difference.

Exercise and reducing your caffeine, alcohol and salt intake will help, as will eating calcium-rich foods and complex carbohydrates found in fruit and vegetables.

Some women benefit from supplements of vitamin B6, vitamin E, and magnesium. Reducing stress and getting enough sleep and relaxation is important, too.

If symptoms persist despite these measures, your GP may suggest medication, such as the oral contraceptive pill.
