Hi everyone,

I'm writing an article for my University's newspaper highlighting the problems inherent in being female - i.e. the experience of PMS/PMDD. I want to raise awareness of the issue to students, lecturers and people in general. Premenstrual symptoms can be catastrophic when it comes to many aspects of life, and your feedback on your experiences with PMS/PMDD would be very much appreciated to help me write my article. It goes without saying (although here I am, saying it) that all feedback will be kept strictly confidential.

Some questions then:

A) do you have PMS or PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder)? If neither, what name or term would best describe your condition or symptoms?
B) how long does your PMS/PMDD last for?
C) what emotional and physical symptoms do you get?
D) how do your symptoms affect your life, in particular work/studies and relationships (family/friends/partner)?
E) what medications , herbal/nutritional supplements or lifestyle changes have you found to help with your PMS/PMDD symptoms?
F) what advice would you give to PMS/PMDD sufferers to help them cope with work/studies and relationships when they are being affected?

If you don't have time/don't want to answer all of the above, just answering one or two would be really great. In fact, just any info at all on your personal experience would be really great!

Thank you!
Evelyn x

Hi Evelyn

Dear Caz,

My article is online! Some of your responses were included at first, but in the paring-down process I had to cut them out eventually. However they helped me to shape my article and were very useful. Thank you very much again for helping me! You can find it on http://www.thegaudie.co.uk/ If you search by 'Authors' and find 'Evelyn Mckay' then you'll see my article on PMS/PMDD xx
