Is PMS not exactly what you think? Most women do experience symptoms that are under the PMS umbrella, but only 5% of women actually suffer from PMS or PMDD. Women who do experience their menstrual cycles in a way that impedes their life, should talk to their OB/GYN. The most extreme part of the spectrum are the women that suffer from PMDD. Those individuals are very highly distressed and usually need more intense interventions to be able to manage their hormonal fluctuations. OB/GYN Dr. Neetu Sodhi shares tips on how to have a great dialogue about your menstrual symptoms with your doctor.
