See a practitioner if you have heavy or painful periods. For milder symptoms, the following remedies may be useful for PMS symptoms.

When puberty is too early and excessive or you have cramps with headache use Calc Phos. If it is delayed and protracted and the person is weepy, Pulsatilla is a good one.
If puberty is delayed with moody and irritable tendencies, Sepia is recommended. Cramps with breast tenderness may be helped with Calc Carb and cramps with depression or low self esteem may be helped with Lycopodium.
China or Phosphorus is indicated when menstrual flooding occurs. Hot flushes with a red, burning face and palpitations may be relieved with Belladonna. If you are intolerant of tight clothing, try Lachesis.
Pulsatilla may be used for milder hot flushes, teariness and wanting company. However Sepia is for when you want to be left alone, are indifferent towards family and have flushes of heat. If you are hot with burning feet and frequent waking, then Sulphur is indicated.
