Premenstrual mood disorders afflict a substantial number of women of reproductive age. Medical treatments provide excellent symptomatic relief to many women but at times a poor therapeutic response or adverse effects attributable to these therapies lead women to seek alternative solutions. Oophorectomy (with concomitant hysterectomy) followed by low-dose estrogen therapy has been shown to be an effective alternative for such cases of menstrual-cycle-related mood disorder.

Can one induce premenstrual symptomatology in women with prior hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy?
TLDR
It is concluded that women diagnosed as having PMS do not respond in a uniform fashion to ovarian hormones and individual subjects showed correlations between some symptom scores and serum progesterone concentrations.
PERSISTENCE OF SYMPTOMS OF PREMENSTRUAL TENSION IN HYSTERECTOMIZED WOMEN
TLDR
It is demonstrated that neither the presence of the uterus nor the occurrence of menstruation are necessary for the manifestation of the premenstrual tension syndrome and support the view that it has a hormonal basis.
Is premenstrual dysphoric disorder a distinct clinical entity?
TLDR
The consensus of the group was that PMDD is a distinct clinical entity and potential treatments for this disorder can now be evaluated on this basis to meet the clear need for effective therapy.
The Hormonal Causes of Premenstrual Tension
TLDR
My attention has been increasingly directed to a large group of women who are handicapped by premenstrual disturbances of manifold nature, in whom grave systemic disorders manifest themselves predominantly during the premen menstruation.

Intermittent fluoxetine dosing in the treatment of women with premenstrual dysphoria.
TLDR
Intermittent dosing of fluoxetine seems to be effective and mostly free of side effects in women with PMDD and, therefore, may offer an attractive treatment option for a disorder that is itself intermittent.
