Does pmdd often cause you to have suicidal thoughts as a teenager?

In brief: Not often

Pmdd in an otherwise healthy person is usually manifested by irritability, crying, and perhaps rages.
Thinking about death is very common in adolescents. Most don't go further than to muse (alprostadil) about being dead. Those who do not talk about their feelings are at greater risk of actually attempting or completing suicide. If you have these thoughts, it's best to discuss them with your doctor or parents.
