Premenstrual Syndrome (n.). 1. A combination of distressing physical, psychologic, or behavioral changes that occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycleSymptoms of PMS are diverse (such as pain, water-retention, anxiety, cravings, and depression) and they diminish markedly 2 or 3 days after the initiation of menses.;A term used to describe the psychological aspects of PREMENSTRUAL. In a longitudinal prospective study, mood fluctuations were assessed for evidence of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) as well as other menstrual, day of week, and lunar cyclicity. Volunteer participants from the community (60 women and 10 men) provided daily data for 12 to 18 weeks.

In the general population, mild premenstrual mood symptoms occur in up to 80% of women [], but serious cases can impair daily activities, in social, family and work functioning, and cases featuring PMDD range between 2% - 18% [9,12].

Some nosologists and scientists who study premenstrual syndrome (PMS) felt that, while a specific psychiatric disorder does exist, it occurs relatively rarely. The disorder can be characterized by recurrent periods of dysphoria on a monthly basis, in synchrony with the menstrual period. Most women of reproductive age have some physical discomfort or dysphoria in the weeks before menstruation. Symptoms are often mild, but can be severe enough to substantially affect daily activities. About 5–8% of women thus suffer from severe premenstrual syndrome (PMS); most of these women also meet criteria for premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
