Re: POST Menstrual Syndrome?

I don't know, but I have this too. Not much PMS or anything, but I find about a week before I ovulate (just after my period ends), I'm so moody and the silliest things like TV commercials can make me cry. I think it has to do with the fluctuation of hormones in your body. When your period starts, the progesterone in your body falls as estrogen levels increase. Estrogen keeps increasing until it peaks when you ovulate, then progesterone begins increasing. Maybe we're just more sensitive to the estrogen than the progesterone? Who knows?
