    Question Does anyone here have PMS for more than a week at a time?

    I swear I have it for 2 weeks a month, then I have my "friend" for a week, so...that makes only one good week per month?

    I am wondering if I am the only one with this problem. I am going to talk to my doctor about it during my next appt.

    Thank You! I have had it for about 10 days at a time ever since I started on birth control pills. I have tried different brands of birth control pills, none of which has been helpful, then last year the dr encouraged me to try the low dose sarafem-for pms/pmdd, it was great for the first 2 weeks, but then I guess as it built up in my system I became an idiot. Nothing bothered me, no pms at all, but I definaetly was not myself. I was really obnoxiously positive, not realistic at all, I went out and bought pastel pants-there is not a single pastel anything in my closet and has not been since I was 10-that was kinda the point when my best girlfriend said "what is going on"? I dumped it after that and have been on my own since. I do feel better now that I can say, at least to myself ,that I know my reaction is hormonal and it might be better to hold off on, say, that decision, repainting the house, getting a puppy, donating my whole wardrobe so I can go by something new, or visiting with my in-laws-until next week.
