How is PMS diagnosed?

Diagnostic procedures for PMS are currently quite limited. Your daughter's complete medical history, physical and pelvic exam will help her physician identify causes for her discomfort.

  • Your daughter's physician may ask her to keep a journal of her symptoms for several months to track the timing, severity, onset and duration of the symptoms.
  • A psychiatric evaluation might be recommended to rule out other possible conditions.
