The Etiology of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

This paper summarises what is known about the etiology of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). Additionally, the paper focuses on five interwoven pieces which are likely to be major contributors to the pathophysiology of PMDD.

Further understanding of this disorder may lead to more efficacious treatments and may shed light on the etiology of other disorders that are temporally related to reproductive life changes, such as pregnancy, postpartum, or menopause-related affective dysregulation.
