Prof. Jayashri Kulkarni talks about Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder in The Guardian

'Like someone flicked a switch': the premenstrual disorder that upturns women's lives.
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder, only recently recognised, can cripple women emotionally, physically and mentally. PMDD affects between 3% and 8% of women of reproductive age.
