Diagnosis of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is based on a combination of physical and psychological symptoms during the second half of the menstrual cycle. The symptoms usually improve within a few days of menstruation and are absent in the first half of the cycle. 

The severity of symptoms can range from mild to debilitating with a sense of loss of control and inability to cope. 

About 1 in 20 women have PMS severe enough to disrupt normal functioning and quality of life. 

There is a variety of options for treating PMS ranging from herbal to hormonal as well as other medications, dietary and lifestyle changes that can be implemented to help allegiate symtoms.
