UNDERSTANDING PREMENSTRUAL DYSPHORIC DISORDER OR PMDD

The premenstrual dysphoric disorder or PMDD is categorized as a health issue that is similar to premenstrual syndrome but is more complicated as compared to it. The onset of PMDD may trigger severe irritability and depression, and even anxiety. The premenstrual dysphoric disorder symptoms often start a week or two before the start of the period and generally stay active for two-three days. Medicine may be required depending on the symptoms. Proper evaluation by a Psychiatrist may be necessary for resolution of premenstrual dysphoric disorder.


CAUSES OF PREMENSTRUAL DYSPHORIC DISORDER

While experts are still pondering over the underlying cause of the ailment, this happens likely due to the changing hormone levels that happen during the cycle. As the body experiences a rise and drop in hormone levels, the neurotransmitters play a huge role in altering the mood. Those who suffer from the premenstrual dysphoric disorder are often more sensitive to these hormonal fluctuations. This overreaction may be responsible for PMDD symptoms
