Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) | Diagnosis & Tests


How is PMS diagnosed?

Your doctor will ask you to keep track of your symptoms on a calendar. If your symptoms follow the same pattern each month, you may have PMS.

Your doctor may want to examine you and do some tests to rule out other possible problems. He or she may also want to talk about your eating habits, exercise habits, your work and your family.
