Despite a plethora of theories, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) has remained an enigma. There has endured within the literature a relentless clash as to the life of the syndrome, a question to whether it truly is one syndrome or numerous, and a debate as to if the beginning is psychic, somatic, or either. Advances in endocrinology, particularly in radioligand assays, making an allowance for exact hormone measurements, have induced a extra clinical assessment of PMS in recent times. still, diffi­ culties have persevered in gathering well-documented info as a result of protean nature of the syndrome. certainly, even at the moment, the query of what calls for dimension throughout the follicular section of the cycle and the premenstrual section continues to be unresolved, and is hard to put in standpoint. In view of the persisting clash among the natural and the mental faculties of inspiration, we, the editors of this booklet, thought of the 6th overseas Congress of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology to be an amazing venue for a workshop during which either events may be inspired to take part. in the direction of this finish, the organizing committee of the Inter­ nationwide Society of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISPOG) used to be approached, and their reaction was once tremendous encouraging. during this recognize, we want to checklist our because of the medical Committee oflSOPG for permitting this workshop to be equipped less than their auspices, yet absolutely lower than our course. We, in flip, stand answerable for the structure and content material of the workshop.
