Premenstrual syndrome in women has been over-estimated and may not be the cause of their bad moods at certain times of the month, according to a new study.

Researchers have suggested that symptoms such as irritability are often unfairly blamed on a woman’s period when other factors such as stress or a lack of support may be to blame, the Daily Mail reported.

They concluded that the studies “failed to provide clear evidence in support of the existence of a specific premenstrual negative mood syndrome”.
