We examined blood levels of calcium, analytical survey method using a cross-sectional study, experimental methods and PMS symptom questionnaires. The results showed that in the group of subjects SPM average blood calcium level, and the mean intake of calcium / day were lower than in non-PMS and showed a fairly correlation between the intake of calcium per day with blood calcium levels in SPM subjects. There is a significant relationship between increased calcium blood calcium levels and symptoms of PMS. The conclusions: 1. there are differences in blood calcium levels and 2. intake of calcium per day between patients with PMS and not PMS, 3.
