Premenstrual syndrome & Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) describes the emotional and physical symptoms related to periods that many women experience. For some women, these symptoms can be severe and debilitating, interfering with daily life including work and relationships. When symptoms are very severe, this might be indicative of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) which can be detrimental to overall wellbeing. Sadly PMS and PMDD can be poorly recognised by many doctors. Some women can feel like their symptoms are not taken seriously and current options for treatment are not offered.

At The Bronte Clinic we take these debilitating conditions seriously. There are many treatment options which can help with the symptoms of PMS and PMDD, such as lifestyle modifications, supplements and hormonal treatments.

At the Bronte PMS consultation, we will always discuss and make a plan that is personalised to you and that follows current evidence and guidelines.
