Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

If a woman has disturbing symptoms that occur in relationship to her menstrual period, it is appropriate to contact a health care practitioner for an evaluation.

If PMDD is causing significant depression, suicidal thoughts may occur. Ideas of suicide are considered a medical emergency, and emergency care should be accessed immediately.
