By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/10/2017

It is true that each phase of the menstrual cycle may have different symptoms that may be more or less evident depending on the woman. However, those symptoms that women suffer the most are the so-called premenstrual symptoms, which appear just before the beginning of their period and are maintained during their first days. These are discussed below:

  • Ovarian and abdominal pain
  • Swollen and painful breasts
  • Colic
  • Fluid retention
  • Headache
  • Acne
  • Changes in mood

The ovulation phase may also result in minor discomfort such as very mild spotting and pain in the ovaries.
