Women & Suicide
For every man that dies by suicide, four women will attempt it.
Suicidal ideation is a very real and very troubling symptom of PMDD. An estimated 15% of women with this disorder will attempt an act of suicide in their lifetime. Transgender individuals are at an even greater risk. While the majority of women with PMDD do not follow through on thoughts of self-harm, it is imperative that all women with PMDD receive access to support, care, and intervention when needed.
