Project Outline

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) describes a subset of women who have severe premenstrual symptoms, including affective, cognitive, behavioural, and/or physiological symptoms. Women suffering from PMDD experience significant functional impairment. Cognitive-behavioural treatment programs have been developed in previous studies; however, treatment is rarely available in regular health care.
The current study aims to develop and to investigate a cognitive-behavioural treatment program to reduce PMDD distress. The program is offered as an online self-help in order to make the treatment available nationwide. Women who meet the DSM-IV-TR criteria for PMDD are randomly assigned to an intervention or a waitlist group. Before and after the treatment as well as 6 months after the end of the treatment symptom severity, distress, associated problems, and treatment satisfaction are assessed.

Keywords: Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, Internet-based self-help, guided self-help, behavioural medicine, intervention study


The study started in Spring 2013, women can register until the end of 2015.
