I recently (today) have come to the conclusion that I think I have PMDD. I don’t like to self-diagnose generally but everything makes sense looking at the symptoms and onset and everything. I know this is a vague question, but is anyone willing to share their experience with it? And how it relates to your mental health/what do the symptoms look like and when do you have them? I’ve looked up stuff online but I would like to hear from people with personal experiences. Anyone willing? Either on this post of you can msg me. Much appreciated! Thanks in advance for anyone who reads this

Some individuals with PMDD shared their experiences, stating that they have severe cramps and migraines the full week of their period since they were a teen, depression and manic sorta energy level changes the week before it starts. Some feel like it's ruining their life to an extent as every two weeks, for the rest of their life basically, is going to be like this. Others mentioned having cycles of mental health issues, misphonia, and just overall not being able to function properly for 2-3 weeks per month. Some also experience anxiety, hot flashes, and racing thoughts one week prior to their period.

      I get extremely angry and intolerant of my partner and despite feeling aware it's part of my cycle I still seem to rationalise my impatience. It's so hard! The anxiety is so intense as well, but seems dependent on other factors!

      I have been diagnosed with PMDD. When tracking my mood I have bad days during ovulation, and 1-2 weeks before my period. The depression and anxiety get so bad that some days it’s a fight to get out of bed. Others it’s a fight to live. I have also been watching a lot of TikTok videos. There are some interesting thoughts about hormones, adhd, and connections. You can msg me if you want

      With my experience, it’s usually the week before and the week of my menstrual cycle and I feel completely depressed. Feeling like the world would be better off without me. It was the lowest of lows feeling and it was only 1-2 weeks every month. I would feel tired and extremely irritable as well. Frustrated with anyone and everything.
