Premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, is a set of symptoms that usually occurs one or two weeks before the start of your period. Some women develop PMS in their teens; others develop it later on, even in their 30s or 40s. Three out of four women will experience PMS at some point in their lives.

PMS lifts with menstruation so women are symptom-free for seven to ten days per cycle. PMS doesn’t technically exist anymore as a medical diagnosis, but it’s commonly used to describe the less intense feelings of bleh, meh, and ugh in the week leading up to your period.

  • The most common medication prescribed for PMDD is for sure combination birth control and/or a SSRI anti-depressant regimen. PMS is not even comparable to PMDD. PMDD is a systemic mind and body reaction to the luteral phase chemicals and hormones released during the menstrual cycle. This is super misleading!

  • I feel so sad, I have anxiety and the feeling of hopelessness days before my period. I am also overthinking and will cry for a tiny reason. Is this normal?

  • I have self-diagnosed PMDD and what really helps for the psychological side for me are just keeping a visual of my period-tracking calendar. My moods feel TOTALLY out of control when I’m about to “start.” So it can be crazy helpful just having that little reminder on the wall or on my phone that these negative feelings are temporary, and it’s not just because “I’m a terrible person” or “everything is going wrong”

  • I deal with this 10 days a month. My mother is 61 but when she had a period her whole life dealt with this. I will verbally abuse everyone around me. Yell cry snap. Cry over a commercial. Cuss out my boss dump my boyfriend. All I want to do is lay in bed. Eat chocolate all day and drink pepsi after pepsi non stop. Then after I abuse everyone in my whole family for a week I finally get my period and it’s over and then my family is snapping at me and I’m like jeesh what’s your problem. I have all 11 of these symptoms.

  • Suicidality is the g hardest part of it to fight. So many women complete suicide due to this condition. It’s a hormone issue not purely “psychological”. Why is it in the DSM5. YOU NEED TO SEE AN ENDONCRINOLOGIST. A hormone specialist!!!!

  • 2 days before and first 2 days of the reasearch isnt always accurate. Eating everything in sight wanting to beat up anyone in my path.

  • This video was really helpful. I’m going to make an appointment as soon as possible to get the right diagnosis. But I really think this might be true for me. I usually try to be mindful of the week before my period knowing I’m more irritable and angry. I thought that was normal. I recently moved the week before my period. Such a bad idea!!! Now my husband is so upset with me we haven’t spoken in a few days. So check mark on interpersonal relationships issues. I’m really hoping there is a medication that can help. I’ve tried all kinds of other things. But I’m left feeling so hopeless that I’m never going to be able to be any different.

  • Once a month my wife hates me, is leaving me, is going to kill herself, abandon our children, cheat on me with random people, and makes my life impossible to endure

  • Thank you for this video and sharing information! I have suffered from pmdd for years and years. It still catches me off guard every month and sure enough, as soon as period comes I’m all better. I have it bad. Really bad. I also have bpd and PTSD alongside other issues and sometimes when pmdd flares up my PTSD is through the roof per say. I have actually packed up and left my home in just a few minutes in a hurry because of it. For some reason I thought that my husband was going to kill me (he is a gentle soul and hasn’t laid a hand on me since we’ve been together, my ex husband of 15 years however was very abusive in every way) but as soon as period came I realized how irrational it was that I acted that way. It creeps up slowly seemingly taking over all thoughts and emotions. I have even become suicidal during those times. I now keep a record and mark the calendar like you said so that I know it’s coming and I can prepare as well as let my husband know ahead of time. I’m learning about certain foods that can help with the hormones and my husband has recommended Thai chi to help. I haven’t tried yet though. Again, thank you so much for sharing ❤️

  • Sometimes I can have periods where my PMS makes me extremely agitated to the point I don’t recognize myself.
    Other times my PMS hasn’t been that bad, meaning, it hasn’t affected my ability to be normal in social situations.
    I wonder if this depends on external factors. Like, maybe those times your emotions aren’t going all over the place is ’cause you don’t have things/people in your life that ’set off’ these extreme responses.

  • Unfortunately I’m literally not being dramatic this is me all the time I have all 10 except that last one(kinda)so I’m like don’t let that period Come… I really feel like Hulk

  • Whenever I cut refined sugar and processed carbs out of my diet, PMS almost disappears. Other things that help are chasteberry extract capsules, magnesium powder, and also ginger root capsules to help with inflammation to prevent cramps. It also helps to drink a lot of water before and during your cycle, and there is a tea from herbal medicinals called female toner that helps keep you healthy and balanced.

  • So what you’re saying is no matter what you do you won’t lose weight while you’re on your period or PMS. Because I’m currently PMSing and DRY FASTING. And I’m barely losing weight despite not eating or drinking anything. Also once my period is over I should lose all the weight I was supposed during my PMS and period right?

  • I have all of the above. I have angry violent outbursts and my ovaries start hurting really bad and I get really anxious. I tried telling my gynecologist but he wouldn’t listen to me.

  • I have PMMD and I really hate my period. Physically it’s not the worst, it’s not like I bleed through or get cramps, but mentally it messes me up real bad, it makes me want to kill myself. I told my mom about how much it makes me suicidal and she didn’t care at all, she didn’t believe me. I told her about birth control and she just rambled about how it can be bad for your health and then told me to talk to my DAD about it. Seriously if she can’t understand me HOW WILL MY DAD UNDERSTAND???? I am too scared to go on my own to the doctor to talk about it, I feel like they won’t understand me either. Not to mention I also have BPD, which doesn’t help AT ALL. The only way I can make it stop is by starving myself at the point my period disappears. I really feel like killing myself but I am too scared to do it… God help me…

  • Hi @katimorton I’ve been dealing with PMDD since shortly after puberty. From your experience could a lack of serotonin be a contributing factor? I worked with a therapist doing EMDR and found I had CEN (Childhood Emotional Neglect). I’m just curious if a lack of the “happy” chemical in our brains due to childhood or PTSD etc. could be the reason we have a hard time coping with our normal hormonal cycles? I have a really regular cycle and yet I have considered having a hysterectomy as a last resort. My hope for all PMDD sufferers is that more research be done and I hope everyone finds happiness every day not just two weeks a month.

  • Tip: Use an app to track your period. I use “My Calander”, it will remind you that you’re about to start your period and you can also add it as a gadget which will count down the days to your next period.

    Theres lots of other features in this app that are so helpful, notes, medications, feelings, symptoms.

  • I have a question I’m at the age where I’m probably gonna start my period any minute for the first time and I have all of those symptoms that you explained except it’s been going on for like a long time is that just part of puberty because it’s been going on for like a year or two just getting more and more frequent and worse as the years went on so is that just a part of puberty ����‍♀️ ���� ��. �� ����. ��. ��. ����

  • How do I deal when I am stuck at home with my kids and non understanding husband during this covid -19 thing trying to get through a bout of a bad one? I will be calling my doctor, but they’re so busy already with corona virus stuff

  • I’ve been on and off from a relationship for over 5 years now. I’ve realized, it wasn’t normal for me always leaving and ending it when things got super rough. I realized that even though I already have major depressive thoughts and suicidal thoughts and anxiety and PTSD, Id leave my boyfriend, I’d be a wreck, over eating, so angry I’d self harm myself, and I’d literally get so overwhelmed with life and everyone that I’d try to end my life and boom I’d start my period days later. My ex would say “told you. Every time you start your period you leave me.” I hate when people throw up pmsing in smart assed ways where they don’t really know the feeling or how it is. It pisses me off even more when you throw it up in my face. I also don’t wanna say that my relationship problems are just because of PMDD. I wasn’t diagnosed. My relationship was crap, super abusive, I’ve been molested and bullied and have a lot of issues mentally as is. Before I start my periods it literally only gets worse and sometimes I just don’t know how to work though it because it’s so severe with or without starting my period. I was also on my period for a year and 3 months non stop and people, family, my relationship, would always tell at me for having attitude. Or for being frustrated. And it would literally start fights and I blame myself for it. But is it really me? Or is it people not understanding me? When times get rough I run away now because I’m afraid of doing something stupid. Idk I think my problems are more severe to where I need to seek mental help. But I just found PMDD out and it’s like mine blowing on how shitty being a woman can actually be and for people to be rude and hurtful and for them to think that I’m just mad for no reason when I tell people that I just wanna be left alone. It makes things worse and people idk. People piss me off now. With or without pmdd. I’ve gained so much weight. I’ve not been able to have 8 hours of sleep in years. I lose my jobs, and lose relationships, and all I do when I’m okay and mentally okay at the moment is give to people and help people because I love this world. But when I’m moody, I fucking hate society. I hate this world. I wanna end myself. Idk. Rant over. Maybe I just need a forever friend. Shit. A forever family. Idk what home even is anymore. ��

  • What if I also have a sinus infection, anxiety and neighbour problems that I had to go to the police about during the week aswell as a mother who is insensitive��

  • I can’t believe there are some women out there who actually have to endure this every single month, mother nature is so unfair… yet I don’t know how those women can get a full time job? And yet the last option available to them is ovary removal, what a shitty deal is to be born with pmdd
