After treatment, the prognosis for premenstrual syndrome (PMS) includes reduced or eliminated symptoms. For patients with mild symptoms, treatment may not be necessary, and symptomatic, over-the-counter treatments may relieve pain when necessary.
As the patient ages, symptoms may become more severe. When the signs of PMS become so severe that it interrupts normal functioning, follow up care may be needed to recommend treatment.
For patients with deep depression, the survival rate is lower than patients without depression. PMS may intensify the symptoms of depression. In fact, the suicide rate for women with depression is higher in the 14 days before women’s period.
