The main idea is to review previous research on premenstrual syndrome and premenstrual dysphoric disorder and summarize the background, etiology, prevalence, diagnostic criteria, environmental factors, and treatment of these two disorders. The comparison of premenstrual syndrome and premenstrual dysphoric disorder is mentioned in this article so that the reader can better understand the difference between the two. When looking for information about the premenstrual dysphoric disorder, we found that most scholars doing experiments chose patients with premenstrual syndrome, not patients with premenstrual dysphoric disorder. What is more, in the experiments on the premenstrual dysphoric disorder, there are conflicting conclusions from different scientists, such as “does the severity of premenstrual dysphoric disorder increase with age. “In addition, the shortcomings of current research and suggestions for future research directions are also mentioned. In most previous studies examining premenstrual syndrome and premenstrual dysphoric disorder, there has been a focus on physical symptoms and changes in substances in the body. In collecting literature for this paper, we found that environmental factors can affect not only the severity of the premenstrual dysphoric disorder but even the outcome of premenstrual dysphoric disorder treatment. Therefore, this article covers premenstrual dysphoric disorder basics and will give the reader a clear overview.
