Re: POST Menstrual Syndrome?

I definitely sympathise with this! The week after my period is always the worst. I've analysed this so much and have reasoned it to being the bodies attempt to make you fertlise an egg. i.e last month an egg was wasted (not fertilised) and now you have one week to change something in your life before the next egg is also wasted. I figure being depressed is your bodies way of letting you know you have to change something.

it's terrible for a few days! But I'm a pretty happy for the rest of the time so I just put up with it. I'm a bit worried that this might make me susceptible to post natal depression though (haven't had a kid yet, but what if this is due to the same hormones?!!).
