Premenstrual changes: Patterns and correlates of daily ratings
Daily ratings of 20 measures of mood, behavior, and physical condition made by 64 women for one menstrual cycle were analysed to determine patterns of covariance between the pre- and postmenstrual periods. Five discriminantly different dimensions of premenstrual change were identified. They were found to be differently related to a lifetime diagnosis of effective disorder. These results, and others, support the recommendation that research should be focused upon diversified premenstrual changes rather than a single premenstrual syndrome.
