  • "Rather more of the nasty things that women do, or that befall them, do occur in the paramenstrum than would if all factors were equal. Most women know that when they are under stress, the added stress of the lead-up to menstruation will produce whatever symptom their particular psyche has inflicted upon the soma, be it a pimple or a blister or vomiting and blind rages. Most women would readily agree with Dr Dalton that the paramenstrum is a time of vulnerability, but that is not at all the same thing as giving up any attempt to control it."
