Premenstrual Syndrome Clinic

If you feel you may have severe Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), please call us at 919-966-9640 to discuss our evaluation process. All women will undergo an initial screening and evaluation to determine severity of mood symptoms over the course of the menstrual cycle. Women can then schedule an appointment in an appropriate clinic, or participate in PMS research.

PMDD Research

UNC Researchers within the Department of Psychiatry are investigating severe PMS and Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). There are multiple research studies available for participation. These studies are intended to investigate the causes of PMDD and will help guide the development of future treatment interventions.
