Default PMDD / women / suicide

STB - Suicidal thoughts and behaviours. Self injurious thoughts and behaviours.
PMDD - Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (a most severe form PMS). This has always been a very misunderstood condition but it has extremely high rates of suicidal thoughts and behaviours as can be seen in the articles below.

Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors Linked to Hormone-Sensitive Brain Disorder - Neuroscience News

Article about a study in BMC Psychiatry from University of Illinois suggesting high statistics between premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and suicidal thoughts and behaviours.

Prevalence of lifetime self-injurious thoughts and behaviors in a global sample of 599 patients reporting prospectively confirmed diagnosis with premenstrual dysphoric disorder | BMC Psychiatry | Full Text

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder - PubMed
PMDD is listed in DSM-5 under "Depressive Disorders"
This PubMed entry lists current criteria.

Article at top suggests changes are necessary to include STBs in future editions of the DSM criteria for PMDD

It's about time women's health in this area was taken more seriously. Same with postnatal depression and postpartum psychosis.

from the study "Suicide is the second leading cause of death among Americans ages 10 to 34"
