Premenstrual dysphoric disorder is a severe reaction to the normal hormonal fluctuations of one's monthly cycle. PMDD can cause depression, pain, irritability, headaches, mood swings, trouble managing emotions/anger, insomnia, bloating, self-loathing, and can lead to self-harm. It is estimated that 1 in 20 menstruators live with PMDD and it can begin at any point (i.e starting with your first cycle or after pregnancy etc). There is no cure for PMDD.
