When to Call A Doctor

Call your doctor if your premenstrual symptoms:

  • Cause you significant distress or discomfort

  • Make it hard for you to function in daily life

  • Interfere with your personal relationships

If you think you are in danger of causing harm to yourself or others, call your doctor for an emergency appointment.
