In brief: Only before period
Both PMS and pmdd are limited to the week or so before the period.
Pmdd is specifically significant depression. Pms can be moodiness, bloating, breast tenderness and other hormone-related symptoms. If your symptoms persist beyond the week before your period, you should get them checked out.
