INTRODUCTION: To determine the prevalence and impact of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) in Turkish employee women, with a focus on their disruption of work performance.
METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, Premenstrual Symptoms Questionnaire (PSQ) results of the 232 working women who applied to Acıbadem Kozyatagı Hospital Gynecology Clinic between 2013-2015 with the diagnosis of PMS/ PMDD were analyzed.
RESULTS: The prevalence of each premenstrual symptom was high. The prevalence of moderate to severe PMS and PMDD was 8.6% and 2.9%, respectively. The 44.3% of working women was found to suffer from reduced work performance. ‘Working as a director’ (OR8.63,95%CI: 1.22-120.0), ‘difficulty concentrating’ (OR3.15,95%CI: 1.05-10.6), and ‘fatigue or lack of energy’(OR5.92,95%CI: 1.32-34.5) increased the risk of poor work performance.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: This study showed that premenstrual symptoms affect not only the daily activities but also the work performance of employee women.
