    Transcript

    00:00 There's also premenstrual dysphoric disorder.

    00:04 This happens with any menses, well most menses if a person has this.

    00:12 And a lot of times people will just yell at the woman and say, "Oh, you're just PMS." Well, yeah, but it is a disorder when it interferes with the person's life, when they find that they have 5 days or more right before their menses begins where this hopelessness comes along, kind of crushes them sort of like a tsunami.

    00:36 And when it happens, like with any depression, when they're in it, it doesn't seem like it will ever, ever get any better.

    00:45 So, once the menses has happened, it begins to lighten up again.

    00:51 It's important to remind the person, this is a pattern, and we just have to help you get through this period of time.

    00:59 There are medications and so we want to be able to make sure that this person knows that they don't have to live with this kind of sadness.
