Pure Madness: Serve PMS To Be Classified As Mentall Illness
Pure Madness: Serve PMS To Be Classified As Mentall Illness

My PMS doesn't drive me crazy but the people claiming that they (PMS) are mental illness going to drive me mad and to the the nearest psychiatric ward.

What are PMS, well for those of you who don’t know PMS are Pre Menstrual syndrome, they kick just before women get their period or in the first few days. They vary on each woman depending on her environment and diet, some women experience serve pain in their lower abdomen, some get annoyed, easily irritated and more.

As common as PMS is, some women experience symptoms that are even more severe, which is known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), or “PMS on steroids and according to NPR, under the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, the DSM-5, PMDD is now considered a distinct mental disorder. While as many as 85 percent of menstruating women have at least one PMS symptom, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, no more than 1 percent of menstruating women are affected by PMDD, which requires the following criteria for diagnosis:

  •  The symptoms have to correspond with the menstrual cycle for a minimum of two successive months.
  • The symptoms must be truly disruptive to a woman’s ability to carry out her normal activities. That’s different than in PMS, where most symptoms are mild.
  •  PMDD women must report that they aren’t depressed all the time, just in the days leading up to their periods.

As  Dr. C. Neill Epperson, Director of the Penn Center for Women’s Behavioral Wellness, told NPR, the woman must clearly have “symptoms under a certain hormonal state that are not there under another hormonal state.”

While PMDD’s inclusion in the DSM-5 is a victory for Epperson and others who served on a work group in charge of updating the manual, the decision was not without controversy. She explained:

“I think any time a disorder occurs more frequently in women or only in women, there’s going to be a group of individuals who have concern that this will diminish women’s role in society, their sense of being capable.”
