I'm so happy there's more of a discussion around postpartum mood changes, but I don't think there's enough conversation around how hormones around our menstrual cycles affect our moods. I talk with Carly Snyder, MD, a reproductive psychiatrist who works with women struggling with emotional symptoms throughout their reproductive years. We chat about *why,* as women, we feel less emotionally stable around our periods, and discuss Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), which is an extreme PMS that I've dealt with for several years now. And birth control—is it all evil as far as moods are concerned? Listen to find out!
