Even with severe symptoms, the survivability of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is high. The pain usually subsides after the menstrual period begins, but depression, anxiety and other mental health issues can continue. Patients with PMDD suffer from a serious condition that needs treatment.
As the patient ages, the condition can get worse, so the long-term prognosis includes extended treatment to reduce symptoms.
Some women with PMDD suffer from suicidal thoughts. Suicide is higher among women with PMDD during the second half of the menstrual cycle.
