Recently, I have been consulted by a few women regarding symptoms around their period. All of them experience similar bloating, headaches and mood swings as part of their symptoms and they occur every month. 

One of them has severe, disruptive symptoms that means she needs to stay off work for a few days.

Such conditions are not uncommon for every healthy woman and can be called "premenstrual syndrome" or PMS. It is estimated that 85% of women experience some degree of PMS, however, only a few have severe symptoms that disrupt work or personal relationships, known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
