She says she was out with her friends for drinks, but one of them called the house asking for her. So, was she lying? How do you decode your partner’s lie?

If you are worried that their words are sending mixed messages, then it’s time to look for other signals – namely what your partner’s body is telling you.

So if you want to know where she really was last night (or how much he really spent on that TV), the most telling signs are expressed through a person’s body language, according to Richard Newman.

The body language expert shared tips with Yahoo! Lifestyle on how to detect whether someone is lying.

Following his research into Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) he has trained more than 6,500 people from 29 countries on the effective use of body language and how to read its signs in everyday life.

Well Being: 10 questions about PMS (premenstrual syndrome)

So what are the symptoms, tests and treatments for PMS? Get the lowdown here in our 10 questions about PMS.

1.  What is PMS?

PMS (also know as PMT, or premenstrual tension) describes all the symptoms that occur regularly in some women before their period. These symptoms most often appear a few days before a period starts, but can sometimes occur as early as the middle of the menstrual cycle. The symptoms vary in nature and intensity, depending on each woman.

2.  What happens during PMS?

Three symptoms occur particularly frequently: sore breasts, bloating and mental-emotional tension. However, there can be a number of other symptoms such as heavy legs, headaches or migraines and digestive problems… In total, more than 100 clinical manifestations have been reported as part of PMS.

  • Symptoms are severe enough to disrupt the woman’s daily life
