Is your menstrual cycle causing you excessive emotional distress? You could be suffering more than PMS.
Have you noticed how just before you get your period you seem to turn into this nasty and hard work person to be around? You get so tired, moody, become depressed and irritable and are ready to pick a fight especially with those close to you. Once you get your period you’re back to your old.
If this happens to you, you may be experiencing Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD).
What is Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)?
PMDD is more than feeling bloated, getting cramps and having breast tenderness. It is a type of depression that can significantly negatively impact your life including work, social life and relationships.
Three to 8 of 100 Australian women are likely to experience Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder. If not treated properly, PMDD can negatively affect relationships with all those around you. You can become so depressed and feel guilty afterwards so much so it can affect your confidence in ability to be around people.
