Treatment guidelines for premenstrual syndrome
National Association for Premenstrual Syndrome
More than 150 symptoms are reported to be associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS), the number and type varying from individual to individual. Even within the same person, the severity of symptoms often varies from month to month. Diagnosis depends not on the type of symptom but on the timing, as symptoms usually arise during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.
This Guidelines summary covers therapeutic options, and includes a management algorithm.
