1 in 20 women and AFAB (assigned female at birth) individuals suffer from Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). PMDD is a serious hormonal condition with a range of physical and mental health symptoms. People with PMDD are 30% more likely to attempt suicide in their lifetime compared to those without the condition.
Our vision is to improve awareness and support for people affected by Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). With women and those AFAB making up half of the population, never before has this been more important.
