PMS and PPMD
PMS AND PMDD
Premenstrual Syndrome and Premenstrual dysphoric disorder are related to a variety of physical and psychological symptoms that occur just before menstruation. These include irritability, mood swings, bloating, aggression and weight gain. PMDD is a more severe form of PMS, and symptoms become serious enough to interfere with work and relationships.
Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder can be characterised by significant premenstrual mood disturbance, often with prominent mood reactivity and irritability. By definition, this mood disturbance results in marked social or occupational impairment, with its most noticeable effects in interpersonal functioning.
