Menopause – Mood Swings

It is important to keep in mind that menopause is not a disease but an important phase of a woman's life cycle.

During the transition phase of perimenopause to menopause, a woman’s reproductive hormonal levels of estrogen and progesterone start fluctuating and gradually decline. These hormonal changes can also affect serotonin and norepinephrine levels, which are brain chemicals responsible for promoting feelings of well-being and happiness. This condition triggers a number of symptoms which are physical as well as psychological. Many of these changes have a direct connection to menopausal mood swings.
