Abstract

The authors examined the reporting of daily life events by women with prospectively confirmed menstrual-related mood disorder (N = 40) and asymptomatic control subjects (N = 20). During the follicular and late luteal phases of the menstrual cycle, subjects completed a schedule of life events that monitors an individual's perception of 1) the frequency of occurrence of life events and 2) the degree of associated distress or pleasure. The patient group reported significantly more negative life events than the control group. Further, the patients with menstrual-related mood disorder showed significantly more distress associated with the same event when it occurred in the premenstrual phase than when it occurred in the post-menstrual phase.
