Patient information : See related handout on premenstrual disorders. The subspecialties of psychiatry and gynecology have developed overlapping but distinct diagnoses that qualify as a premenstrual disorder; these include premenstrual syndrome and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. These conditions encompass psychological and physical symptoms that cause significant impairment during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, but resolve shortly after menstruation. Patient-directed prospective recording of symptoms is helpful to establish the cyclical nature of symptoms that differentiate premenstrual syndrome and premenstrual dysphoric disorder from other psychiatric and physical disorders.

Methods: A cross-sectional study with women years with PMS complaints. The women were evaluated in terms of weight, height and body mass index BMI.

The agreement between the two questionnaires was assessed by the Kappa k and the prevalence-adjusted, bias-adjusted kappa PABAK values. The DRSP was completed for two cycles by women. The number of patients considered "normal" with symptoms below the threshold for the diagnosis of PMS was similar in both questionnaires. O DRSP foi preenchido por dois ciclos por mulheres.

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder PMDD is a severe and disabling form of premenstrual syndrome affecting 1. The emotional effects of premenstrual dysphoric disorder are theorized to be the result of severe gonadal steroid fluctuations, as they cause dysregulation of serotonin uptake and transmission, and potentially calcium regulation , circadian rhythm , BDNF , the HPA-axis and immune function as well. Treatment is often with antidepressants such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors SSRIs as well as ovulation suppression using birth control pills and GnRH analogues. Like PMS, premenstrual dysphoric disorder follows a predictable, cyclic pattern. Symptoms begin in the late luteal phase of the menstrual cycle after ovulation and end shortly after menstruation begins. Severe symptoms can begin and worsen until the onset of menstruation, with many not feeling relief until a few days after menstraution ends. The most intense symptoms occurring in the week and days leading up to the first day of menstrual blood flow.
