Doctors do not usually need in lab screening or tests for premenstrual syndrome (PMS). For patients with symptoms, doctors at Florida Hospital begin by evaluating these signs and analyzing the patient’s medical history. A pelvic exam and physical exam may be recommended to rule out other serious conditions.
For patients with unusual symptoms, doctors may recommend tracking your symptoms in a journal for many months to determine the regularity, intensity and duration.
In some cases, a psychiatric evaluation or screening may be recommended to rule out depression or other mental health issues.
If you suffer from moderate or severe symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, schedule your appointment at Florida Hospital today. Our compassionate team is dedicated to helping you improve your symptoms and overall wellness.
