Theories about the psychological roots of premenstrual syndrome have a long history, as the opinion was originally spread and, perhaps, it is still shared by a number of clinicians that neuropathic, hysterical women with an unstable psyche suffer from premenstrual syndrome.
There is evidence that stress increases the manifestations of premenstrual syndrome. This led some researchers to believe that perhaps the peak of premenstrual syndrome is about thirty years old, because these are years of intense tension, especially if a woman is torn between her husband, work and children at this time of life. Apparently, the existing emotional problems may be exacerbated by premenstrual syndrome, i.e. According to one of the doctors, premenstrual enhancement occurs. Many researchers have found that in women suffering from malnutrition, such as bulimia, inadequate behavior often intensified during the premenstrual period, and those who use drugs and alcohol during this time can take them more than usual.
Psychiatrist Leslie Hartley Guyz, MD, who runs a premenstrual syndrome research program at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, argues that there is evidence that premenstrual syndrome is associated with hereditary mental disorders, mood imbalances, poor adaptability, and the abuse of chemicals that apparently predispose to the occurrence of the syndrome. Some researchers even tend to regard premenstrual syndrome as a manifestation of manic-depressive disorder.
As for the name of the disease, then there is no uniformity. Should it be called premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual stress or premenstrual disorder? Since each woman has her own set of symptoms, which are expressed differently each time and can be caused by different reasons, some researchers believe that it is more correct to treat them not as a single disease, but as a whole bunch of diseases. The most cumbersome name given in the reference book of the American Psychiatric Association is dysphoric disorder in the late premenstrual phase; it is alarming for feminists and other women who fear that attributing a disease to the field of psychiatry can be very harmful.
