I was wondering if you ladies could help me out. I'm trying to get some feedback on how widespread PMS is in people who are moderately physically active and on birth control. I was hoping everyone could give me the following information:

The type of birth control you're on: (ie I'm on Yasmin.. Drospirenone/Ethinyl Estradiol)
The symptoms of PMS you experience:
How many days before your period do the symptoms start:
How much weight gain, if any, do you experience:
How many days before your period starts do you notice the weight gain:
How many days after your period starts does your weight and symptoms normalize:
What were your symptoms like before you started birth control and have they gotten better or worse:
Do you have any conditions such as PCOS, insulin resistence, diabetes etc:

Thanks girls. I do get symptoms of PMS but I find it hard to see if they really do fall in line with my cycle or if they're psychological.
