Pmt?

Just out of curiosity, what does "PMT" stand for? Is it used in Europe, Canada, and other countries outside of the U.S.? I only know the version, "PMS," or "Pre-Menstrual Syndrome." Is the abbreviation "PMS" only used in the US or does "PMT" stand for something else, entirely? I've seen this on several boards, and I'm just dying to know what it stands for! Thanks!

Re: Pmt?

hi
PMT - Pre menstrual tension
PMS - pre menstrual syndrome
Both mean the same thing - the terms are used interchangeably. There probably is some definition that means they are slightly different, but to all intents and purposes they are the same thing - pre period symptoms.
I am in the UK by the way.
Hope that explains it.

Re: Pmt?

Thanks! That was really bugging me! I thought it might be used in the U.K. because several of the posters who mentioned it said they were from there. Actually, "tension" makes more sense! LOL! Thanks again!
