Symptoms occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual period and stop when menstruation begins. PMS has a higher prevalence in Asian countries compared to western countries. PMS prevalence rate in Indonesia reaches 85% of the female population of reproductive age. The impact of PMS is an increasing amount of work absenteeism, large medical expenses, and low health quality because it disrupts the activities of women. Midwives are responsible for midwifery care throughout a woman’s life cycle so that midwives can prevent and treat PMS.
