This is somewhat embarrassing, but I'm insanely curious. Some background: I had very mild PMS symptoms from age 14 up until I was about 20. I started having sex at age 17. I never had sex when I was single. I'd been single and celibate for just about three years when I met my now-fiance. During my three years of not having sex, I had no PMS whatsoever. No bloating, cramping, achy breasts, irritability, none of it.
He and I started having regular sex in November, and that month I had no PMS symptoms. In December I had a lot of stress going on and missed a period. In both January and February, I got a number of symptoms roughly a week before my period was due. I was irritable, my breasts hurt, my appetite went haywire (usually into overdrive, and I eat like a bird normally), and I got wicked headaches.
I have to wonder if the change in sex hormones is affecting that in any way, and if suddenly getting back into the swing of things, as it were, after three years of nothing has anything to do with it. Can anybody help me out here?
