Women Aren’t The Only Ones Who PMS
Published: Nov 20, 2015

Yes, no need to rub your eyes, you read the headline right! Men also PMS.


No, guys don’t actually go through the biological process of PMS. Men go through IMS which stands for Irritable Male Syndrome. Yes, this is not a joke men have IMS.


Dr Aimee Aubeeleck of University of Derby carried out a study and the findings show:

“We asked 50 men and 50 women lots of questions about symptoms normally associated with PMS and we found men actually scored higher than women in everything apart from water retention.”

I’m sure many men reading this are like :


But, yes, men also feel antisocial, depressed,┬álack of arousal; hot flushes and pain – including stomach cramps, back pain and headaches.


Men have a monthly hormonal cycle that is unique to each man, but men can actually track their moods and recognize they are related to hormonal changes through the month.

So the next time you’re feeling down or feeling weird and can’t really understand why, bro, you’re IMSing!

Though, people are unsure why this happens you can read more about IMS here.
