Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is not just about the emotional toll it has, but also the physical impact it has on women.


There are many symptoms that can be experienced. Some of these are:

  • feeling tired
  • food cravings
  • trouble with memory
  • joint or muscle pain
  • tension, irritability, mood swings or crying spells

PMS can create feelings of disconnect during the month.

Leading her to…

  • An unwillingness to be touched.
  • A short “fuse”.
  • Roller coaster of emotions.

And for him…

  • Not knowing what to do or say.
  • Struggles with how to comfort his wife.
  • There is a lack of physical connection.

And studies show that PMS can last 1-2 weeks BEFORE a woman gets her period which then averages 5 days.

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa bring you the married couples guide to PMS and how to talk about it together.

  1. I’m a Canadian user. Science of Woman-Art of a Man isn’t on Amazon.ca — would be great if you could get that changed.

    • Hi Doug,

      You can order a hardcopy of Eric’s book at ericsmithbooks.com.

      I rarely read a book more than once, but I have read The Science of a Woman, the Art of Manhood 3 times. I found it was like trying to take a sip from a fire hydrant. I guess my heart was in a place to receive different messages each time I read it, because it was like reading three different books.

      God bless you and your family.

      God is good,
