Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

Up to 75% of women experience the moodiness, bloating, and irritability that come with premenstrual syndrome, or PMS. For most people, this is just a minor problem that eases with the onset of menstruation. However, a much smaller percentage of women suffer from extreme bouts of PMS, called premenstrual dysphoric disorder, or PMDD.

One way that doctors help women combat PMDD is by prescribing them the oral contraceptives YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella. However, these drugs come with their own risks, such as deep vein thrombosis and heart attack. If you have suffered due to taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, contact a knowledgeable YAZ attorney of Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.

Causes of PMDD

Unfortunately, doctors do not know exactly what causes PMDD, but they believe it is connected to the fluctuating hormone levels that come when a woman’s body prepares for menstruation. Also, women with depression, seasonal affective disorder, and other problems are more at risk for developing PMDD.

Symptoms of PMDD

PMDD is similar to PMS, but it is much worse. Sadly, women with PMDD must face the debilitating effects of this disorder every month. Women with this condition may experience symptoms such as:

  • Painful cramps
  • Extreme irritability
  • Severe mood swings
  • Disinterest
  • Abnormal food cravings
  • Headaches
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Fatigue

These symptoms can be so severe that it interferes with a woman’s daily life and relationships. Sometimes, though, it can be treated with antidepressants.

Contact Us

If you have been diagnosed with PMDD, you may want to think again before using YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella to help. These oral contraceptives have been linked to dangerous side effects like stroke. If you are a victim of YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, contact a qualified YAZ lawyer from Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.
