During periods I lose my mental stability, why does this happen?
Hello, During periods I loose my mental stability, why this happen? I experience an emotional distress. Along with that periods cause plenty of uncomfortable symptoms. These symptoms vary from person to person. In my case it often extend beyond physical discomfort, like cramps, fatigue, and headaches. How can I manage this?
@tithi Periods can cause plenty of uncomfortable symptoms. Depression and other mood changes often show up in the days before your period starts, but they don’t automatically disappear once it begins. They can linger for a few days, if not longer — some people also experience depression after their period ends. While experts aren’t entirely certain about what causes mood changes during the menstrual cycle, they believe hormones have an important role. Hormonal fluctuations happen naturally over the course of your cycle. Still, they can have an impact on other hormones in your body — notably the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. Both hormones are known to play a part in depression.
