|Orgasm: The Magical Cure for PMS Symptoms|
|By Jing J.|
Did you know that for centuries one of the most popular treatments for “hysteria” was manual stimulation to orgasm by a medical doctor? If you haven’t heard of hysteria, it’s this mysterious catchall of female ailments that existed in recorded history for thousands of years, dating back to ancient Egyptian times. It gained real prevalence during the Victorian Era, and eventually declined in the early 20th century.
Here’s where it gets interesting. Women considered to be suffering from hysteria exhibited a wide array of symptoms including faintness, nervousness, insomnia, fluid retention, heaviness in abdomen, muscle spasms, shortness of breath, irritability, loss of appetite for food or sex, and "a tendency to cause trouble.”
Sounds familiar? It wasn’t until 1953 that an English scientist, Dr. Katharina Dalton, coined the new term “Premenstrual Syndrome” or “PMS.” Ever since then, it’s become the hysteria of the modern era.
From hysteria to PMS. The name may have changed, but the symptoms are strikingly similar. And the mystery remains, even though modern science has developed many sensible explanations and sophisticated treatment methods.
I couldn’t help but wonder though, if orgasm was a proven and popular treatment for hysteria, could it also be a “magic pill” to relieve PMS symptoms?
The good news is that nowadays women don’t have to go to a doctor’s office to get a fine genital massage. They can get it from their lovers, or give it to themselves by self-pleasure or with the aid of a vibrator (a device invented in 1873 to help women reach orgasm without leaving their homes).
From my experience, self-pleasure, self-caring, and self-love are great cures for PMS symptoms. What’s your experience?
