    This study aimed to determine the prevalence of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) according to the DSM-IV and DSM-V criteria using the premenstrual symptoms screening tool (PSST) in young Turkish women aged 15-24 years. This descriptive study included 760 Turkish female students in Izmir. The prevalence of PMS was 61.1% and 26.1 and that of PMDD was 20.4% and 10.0%, based on the DSM-IV and DSM-V criteria using PSST, respectively. In the PMDD category, the most common symptoms were anger/irritability (97.4%). PMS/PMDD prevalence is common in young women, especially in adolescents, and PMDD prevalence was alarmingly high. Health professionals take an active role in the diagnosis and management of PMS/PMDD. © 2020 Wiley Periodicals LLC.
