Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
We specialise in the diagnosis, treatment, and holistic management of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and the more severe premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). There are many treatment options which can help with the symptoms of PMS and PMDD, such as lifestyle modifications, supplements, and hormonal treatments and antidepressants.
Our Women’s health expert Kate Organ has a deep understanding of PMS/PMDD and the huge impact it can have on women and their lives.
During your 45 minute consultation, we will listen and discuss your concerns and your symptoms to understand the impact they have. We will also rule out any other conditions that can mimic PMS.
It may be necessary to perform some blood tests depending on your symptoms
It is often helpful if, prior to your consultation, you can keep a daily symptom and period diary. This is crucial in aiding diagnosis and guiding treatment. Please click the button in the section below to download a symptom and period tracker.
Once diagnosis has been established, we can discuss treatment options and make an individualised plan that works for you.
Treatment options could include advice regarding important lifestyle modifications, supplements, hormonal treatments, or alternative medication.
The option to book a further follow up appointment with our specialist is available, or we can refer you back to your own NHS GP.
