About 5% of women experience severe symptoms called premenstrual syndrome (PMS), only in the two weeks before their menstrual periods.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 11. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 April 2020.
All research outputs
#1,741,729
of 15,474,295 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#4,370
of 11,198 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#13,556
of 125,963 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#30
of 123 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,474,295 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 88th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,198 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 23.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 125,963 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 123 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
