ABSTRACT

Background: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a cyclical phenomenon of physical and emotional symptoms in which a women’s day-to-day functioning is impacted by intense side effects that significantly interfere with her personal happiness. Objective: This study aimed to estimate the prevalence of PMS among female students at university of Hail, Saudi Arabia. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in the University of Hail. A total of 530 female students participated in the study. The clinical criterion of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for PMS was used to assess the prevalence of PMS in the participants. The questionnaire was set in six parts to assess the knowledge, attitude, and practices regarding PMS. Results: The majority (95.3%) of the females were single, and 55.8% were enrolled in medical universities. Females who had PMS were 42.8%, 37.7% were unaware, while 18.7% did not have PMS. The majority (78.33%, n = 412) of the participants reported that PMS disturbed their normal routine. Conclusion: A significant impact of PMS was found in the lives of women at Hail University, and it is also a common problem all over the globe.
