I have feelings of sadness i can't get out of for about a half hour once or twice a month is this a sign of depression or just hormone related?

Feeling blue: Feeling blue can be normal especially in response to situations such as overwork, family or financial stress. Many women have emotional moments near their menstrual cycle
If these feelings become more frequent or if you have thoughts of harming yourself or others then you should seek am appointment with your doctor.
