Incidence and Prevalence of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
Results of epidemiological studies in the United States revealed that 8 out of 10 women suffer from emotional, physical, or behavioral symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. 3% to 8% of these women are diagnosed for premenstrual dysphoric disorder. On a global aspect, there is a similar incidence of the condition among women in their reproductive years worldwide.
Although most of the reports submitted by premenstrual clinics showed incidence of premenstrual dysphoric disorder in white women, results of community-based studies found no significant difference in the possibility of the condition hitting black women as well. Likewise, women can be prone to the condition during their late thirties or middle forties.
