Moody Hormones

You feel anxious and blue at certain times of the month. You cried for three months after your last baby was born. Or maybe you’ve become more depressed since turning 50. These could be signs that your mood fluctuates with hormonal changes. “Not all women experience mood shifts due to hormonal changes, but many do,” says C. Neill Epperson, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. “If you suspect that your depressive symptoms are related to changes in your hormone levels, talk to your doctor. Together, you may be able to identify your triggers and come up with a plan to help you feel better.”
