Dubbed the “evil twin” of PMS, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) is a largely understudied and misunderstood condition affecting approximately 5% of the menstruating population today.
Just like with other mental health disorders, the good news is that there is help and hope out there for the women who are impacted.
While there is no“one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to managing PMDD, there are ways to help manage or alleviate some of the symptoms through lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise & supplements and via seeking help from professionals and those around you.

Being cooped up at home, with limited access to some of the things we love the most or that usually cheer us up, can make it feel like… a recipe for menstrual disaster!
However, by learning the factors that can make your symptoms better or worse, you can help better manage PMS.
