Body Temperature Rises During PMS?
, I’m Diana 22 years old.rnDoc I want to ask why every date where I have to PMS my body temperature is hot every time I sleep until I wake up? And it will be normal after I do normal activities.rnAnd every time my body temperature is like on the 2nd I should have PMS and it’s always not PMS (always 12 days late) and after I get out of PMS my body temperature is no longer hot. You can say every month.. tq..
Hi Diana, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hormones do have a variety of effects on women. Starting from mood swings, toothache, canker sores, lumps in the breasts, bloating, acne, stomach cramps and including an increase in body temperature, can occur due to changes in hormone levels in the body.
In your case, as you have guessed yourself, that the increase in your body temperature is indeed most likely due to the menstrual cycle. This is indeed not common, but from the description you gave, that the body temperature that rises to go down by itself after PMS passes, body temperature that routinely rises during PMS, temperature returns to normal after normal activities, looks very unique that it is caused by hormones. Because bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic infections will not follow such a pattern.
So our advice is that you prepare yourself to face this condition every month by preparing fever-reducing medication, not doing too much activity, drinking lots of water and staying away from stress. This condition does not indicate anything dangerous, but if you want to be examined further, please visit an obstetrician to have your uterus checked. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
