Try talking to her she might not want to tell you because she's probably scared or not wanting you to worry

Are you certain it is PMS? Talk to her and see if there is trouble with friends, bullying or other issue on her mind. My elder daughter struggles with her mood the one week before her period starts and it can be like approaching a live grenade! She gets more crabby than tearful. Our pediatrician advised Vitamin B in addition to a regular daily vitamin and it seems to help a bit, not tons, but some. I did start keeping a calendar to track her mood and her period to be sure it was actually a hormonal issue (of course she did not know I did this). This way when her sports activity bumps up and she stops menstruating I still can have an idea of roughly when to expect her to turn into a grouch.
