Does anyone feel bad at the end of their period?

I notice that some months I feel really bad near the end of my period. I know PMS is supposed to start about a week before and usually subsides about the 2nd day of the period. I just notice that some months I feel really bad near the end of my period. Is there such a thing as Post Menstral Syndrome???????????? I doubt it.

Hmmm. I am not sure about the term post menstrual syndrome, but it would make sense that women would not feel well at the end or after a period. I used to be OK before, during, after my period until I kicked up the stress level. Stress throughout the month will be enough cause for an especially painful and depleting period. So, after all the pain and bleeding, it would only make sense that you feel wiped out. If you take notice, during a month of higher stress, your period will not go as well, and you will feel more exhausted at the end. Sometimes, I feel like I just want to sleep for three days straight and I can even get emotional at the end of the period and have a few cramp spasms. As I mentioned, though, I have noticed that the worst periods come after a month of horrible stress. There is a product that I have been trying and it seems to help with all the cramping and excessive bleeding. It is all natural, which I love. It is Roex's Immortale. It has wild yam, cayenne, and a few other ingredients, that really help ease periods. Products can be found at roex.com. I wonder if anyone else has tried this....?
