Hi all,
So honestly, I had never heard of PMDD before today. I was looking at my chart and I noticed that all three major depressive episodes that I've tracked on here occurred just before my period. Could that be regular bipolar cycling (I'm bipolar I) or PMDD, or just PMS? Is PMDD something you have from the onset of your period, or can you develop it?

Here's my chart... the last episode is just before my next period, I should be starting in a day or two.. Thanks

Hi Katy, I don't really have any answers for you, but I have noticed the same thing, especially on my last cycle. I slept all day and just felt bad all day. My period is irregular so this is really the first time I have noticed it.

I don't think it is bipolar cycling and I think that you can develop PMDD
