The exact cause of PMS is not known to the researchers. It is believed that the changes in the hormones level before the menstrual cycle begins may be the cause of PMS. Females have a natural balance of both the male and female hormones in their body. An increase in the level of prolactin (responsible for producing breast milk) and male hormones in the body of women can decrease the level of progesterone and delay ovulation. This could also be a possible reason of PMS. PMS could also be due to imbalance in magnesium and calcium levels in the body.
