Black women are less likely to develop PMDD, the most severe form of PMS, and have less premenstrual symptoms overall, according to a new study.

The current study was published in Psychological Medicine earlier this year, and compared the premenstrual experience of over 1600 black women (including Afro-Caribbean) and over 900 white women (including Latinas). Black women’s risk of PMDD in this population was less than 50% that of Caucasian women, and that they also were less likely to have premenstrual symptoms overall.

The authors of this study hypothesize, and point to other findings that support the hypothesis, that blacks are less susceptible than whites to psychiatric disorders. This study confirms one possible health advantage that black women experience compared to white women.
