Not as far as we know. Carefully-controlled laboratory studies have failed to find significant differences in resting diastolic or systolic blood pressure between women with prospectively-diagnosed PMDD (i.e., PMDD that has been carefully diagnosed with daily symptom ratings) and controls.

High blood pressure is often called “the silent killer” because, although it is dangerous to health long-term, it often has no short-term symptoms at all. Therefore, if you are concerned about your blood pressure, be sure to discuss this with your doctor, and ask how you should be monitoring or managing it going forward.
