How To Overcome Mood Swings During Periods?

PMS is a time when women experience mood swings like anger and irritation. Most of the people who know me personally can immediately guess when I am menstruating. No, I don’t drum roll announcing that my chums have started. I give very obvious signs that my closed ones can guess. I turn pale and I get irritated on small small things. I am a person who can smile in the worst situations but still PMS times get the worst out of me.


I feel short of patience and others feel me fuming every now and then. Sometimes when I know I am not able to stop being irritated, I issue a statuary warning.

 In short, I feel grumpy! I have tried certain ways that have helped me ease of my mood swings! Some of them are –


I am not a chocolate person at all but during chums, chocolate works great on my mood swings! If you like dark chocolate then go for it! If you’re a weight watcher, keep a check on how many chocolate pieces you pop down!

Yogurt/Sweet curd

Avoid packaged yogurt please. Any fruit yogurt or sweet curd/mishti dahi is too good. I always have one big bowl of mishti dahi. Awesomeness 🙂


Yummy cheese that melts in mouth is good enough to set anyone’s mood straight 😛 . I love cheese balls <3

Warm milk/Ginger tea

I confess that I overdo ginger tea on chums. May be 4-5 cups a day. I keep a check on my sugar but not on cups of tea.

In worst scenarios I take a pain killer called “Meftal Spas”. This was prescribed by my Gynaec , it not only soothes my pain, works great on my pukish feeling. I feel so much better after taking it.


Slow walks help to de-bloat. You must walk at least on the second day of periods or whenever pain is in control.

P.S – Please check with your gynaec before taking this medicine, I am not a doctor and these are my personal experiences.

Do let me know if you have more ways to control mood swings during periods!
