Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the prevalence of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) in Indian women.

METHODS:

Prospective recording of symptoms of PMDD over two menstrual cycles using a structured proforma.

SUBJECTS:

Sixty-two volunteers who returned pro formas complete in all respects.

RESULTS:

Four women (6.4%) fulfilled the criteria of PMDD.

CONCLUSIONS:

The prevalence of PMDD detected in this first report on the condition from India is comparable to the prevalence reported in previous studies. The group of women selected by applying such rigorous criteria appears to be heterogeneous with regard to symptom profile over the cycle.
