> Some important research has recently shown that the dreaded symptoms of PMS can be brought on by unopposed estrogen or estrogen dominance. This imbalance is the result of a lack of sufficient amounts of natural progesterone, a balancing hormone.

Just a quick note chiro recently suggested I increase my magnesium and B-6 intake to counteract my PMS symptoms of irritability and anger which identified itself by my wanting to bite nails (gnashing of teeth so to speak) Its only been a couple of months but seems to be doing the trick...

>I take Evening Primrose Oil for PMS symptoms and it seems to do a good job except for one thing: tender breasts. In particular, I have fibrocystic breasts, that tend to get painful within the two weeks before my Bleeding Time. Any suggestions, either for tenderness, or cysts?

You could try vitamin B6 + B12 caps, I was put on them for a while and they definately helped. A "slow release" formula is best otherwise your body just flushes out the excess.
