Online study: Emotional Processing in People with Premenstrual Difficulties

4M member Ellen Lambert is conducting a study into emotional processing in people with premenstrual difficulties. To take part, please see the information below:

Why is the study being done?

This study aims to explore whether individuals who have premenstrual difficulties process their emotions differently to those who don’t experience premenstrual difficulties. Our long-term aim is to help improve the current approach to diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and support for individuals who experience premenstrual difficulties.

What is involved?

Eligible participants will be asked to complete online questionnaires at 4 timepoints about their experience of premenstrual difficulties and other aspects of their mental health. Participants will be entered to win one of 20 x £50 vouchers.

Who can take part?

Those who:

  • Are Women or assigned female at birth (AFAB) individuals 18yo+
  • Experience premenstrual difficulties (PMS or PMDD)
  • Have regular periods (21-35 days) and have had a period within the last 90 days. 
  • Are not taking SSRI’s or any hormone influencing medications (hormonal contraceptives such as the pill, patch, implant, injection and vaginal ring, as well as meds like testosterone for gender confirmation treatment). 
  • Are not pregnant, breastfeeding, currently in menopause, or have gynaecological diseases such as endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome.
