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.

Eating disorders in premenstrual dysphoric disorder: a neuroendocrinological pathway to the pathogenesis and treatment of binge eating
TLDR
The findings lend supports to existing studies linking binge eating to hormonal changes in the mid-luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, and may help advance new treatment options for a selected, severely impaired group of females struggling with excessive appetite and binge eating due to fluctuations in ovarian activity. Expand
Treatment of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder: Therapeutic Challenges
TLDR
The diagnosis of PMDD is considered provisional until prospective daily ratings of the PMDD criteria symptoms over two menstrual cycles have been completed and reviewed, and the severity and timing of the premenstrual symptoms and the absence of symptoms of a chronic underlying disorder during the follicular phase are documented.

TLDR
The beneficial effect of danazol as treatment depends mostly on achieving an an-ovulatory state and elimination of hormonal cyclicity and not on the drug per se. Expand
