• No, there is no excuse for abuse in any form.
  • Why would it matter? I'm still calling the police

  • If you are asking about PMS, please note that it stands for PRE-menstrual syndrome. The symptoms appear 7-10 days BEFORE a period begins and go away once it does begin. In other words, being "on your period" should not result in abusive behavior. Most women either do not suffer from PMS or have very mild symptoms. A woman whose PMS symptoms are severe enough for her to be abusive to other people needs medical treatment. She has a genuine medical problem.

      In other words, no medical condition allows "anyone" to abuse another person.. You can consider the circumstance that prompted it..but ABUSE is NOT OKay.
  • No. If a man verbally abuses a woman does it matter if he had a really really bad day?
  • What? No!
  • Maybe, maybe not. Then again, it hardly matters. As others have already pointed out, there is no excuses for abuse of any kind.
  • I hardly think so - unless some women spend their entire life on their period.
  • No! Medical conditions or otherwise are not an excuse for any abuse. They may be considered as circumstances, but never should allow another person to ABUSE another.
  • Nobody deserves to be verbally abused. My definition of verbal abuse is using hurtful, insulting words that are not justified in the situation. Its a means of being mean to the other person with no justification. No person deserves to be abused in any way for that matter.

      That explains why the thought of Donald Trump winning the 2024 election is so offensive to people on the Left - they think they're being verbally abused.
  • Most women do not suffer PMS while on their period, but prior to it, and yes it matters because she clearly needs help, if you find yourself in this position please be sensitive because you are more likely able to get her to get help, and if she is suffering she'll hopefully recognise it in herself. If however she refuses to get help, then it is up to you as to whether you remove yourself from the situation. PMS (premenstrual syndrome) is the name for the symptoms women can experience in the weeks before their period. Most women have PMS at some point. You can get help if it affects your daily life.. Symptoms of PMS:- Each woman's symptoms are different and can vary from month to month. The most common symptoms of PMS include: •mood swings •feeling upset, anxious or irritable •tiredness or trouble sleeping •bloating or tummy pain •breast tenderness •headaches •spotty skin •greasy hair •changes in appetite and sex drive. Things you can do to help, exercise regularly, eat a healthy, balanced diet – you may find that eating frequent smaller meals (every 2-3 hours) suits you better than eating 3 larger meals a day, get plenty of sleep – 7 to 8 hours is recommended, try reducing your stress by doing yoga or meditation, take painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol to ease the pain, keep a diary of your symptoms for at least 2 to 3 menstrual cycles – you can take this to a GP appointment. Don’t:- do not smoke, do not drink too much alcohol. Non-urgent advice: See a GP if: •things you can do to help are not working, •your symptoms are affecting your daily life, A GP can advise you on treatments that can help. It's still important to get help from a GP if you need it. To contact your GP surgery:•visit their website, •use the NHS App, •call them.Treating PMS:- As well as changes to your lifestyle, a GP can recommend treatments including:•hormonal medicine – such as the combined contraceptive pill, •cognitive behavioural therapy – a talking therapy, •antidepressants, •dietary supplements. If you still get symptoms after trying these treatments, you may be referred to a specialist. This could be a gynaecologist, psychiatrist or counsellor. Complimentary therapies and dietary supplements may help with PMS, but the evidence of their effectiveness is limited. They can include:•acupuncture, •reflexology •supplements such as vitamin B6, calcium and vitamin D and magnesium (check with a GP or pharmacist if you are also taking medicines before starting to take regular supplements). Causes of PMS:- It's not fully understood why women get PMS, but it may be because of changes in their hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. Some women may be more affected by these changes than others. Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD):- A small number of women may experience more severe symptoms of PMS known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Symptoms of PMDD are similar to PMS but are much more intense and can have a much greater negative impact on your daily activities and quality of life. Symptoms can include: •physical symptoms such as cramps, headaches and joint and muscle pain •behavioural symptoms such as binge eating and problems sleeping •mental and emotional symptoms, such as feeling very anxious, angry, depressed or, in some cases, even suicidal If you need urgent advice you can: •call a GP and ask for an emergency appointment •call a helpline, such as the Samaritans. The exact causes of PMDD are unknown but it has been linked to sensitivity to changes in hormones or certain genetic variations (differences in genes) you can inherit from your parents.
