Close relationship: if your symptoms precede your periods on regular basis it is more likely pmdd. If there is a family history of bipolar or depression, Bipolar would be more likely. Overlap can exist and you will require very close follow up by seeing your psychiatrist regularly. Do not forget to exclude medical conditions by seeing your general practitioner.
