When to see a doctor about pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)

If you experience any of the symptoms of PMDD, especially if they only occur in the two weeks prior to menstruation you should visit your doctor to discuss your concerns. Your doctor will diagnose your symptoms or send you to a gynaecologist for further review.


If you already suspect you have PMDD and have been tracking your symptoms with a PMDD tracker for several months, you should present your symptoms to your doctor for diagnosis and appropriate treatment options - both conventional treatment (medication and/or hormones) or alternative/complementary treatment.
