“MAN PERIODS” YES, IT’S A THING
You heard that right – male pre-menstrual syndrome is endured by 26 per cent of men, according to a new UK study of more than 2400 people. The blokes identified many of the same side effects of the hormonal cycle as women, including irritability, cramps and food cravings.
Interestingly, 43 per cent of the female respondents agreed their men suffered from PMS and admitted to offering special support to their partners during that time of the month to “try to cheer him up”.
Therapist and author of The Irritable Male Syndrome, Jed Diamond, has researched the “man period” and believes “men have hormonal cycles just as women do”.
However, 33 per cent of the ladies in the study simply told their other halves to “man up”.
