If, however, you actually look really angry, we would say your mood is "happy" and ...Read more

I started taking the pill 1+ yr ago for menstural control. Why am I still having severe mood swings only every few months around the end of the month?

You need more: The pill is quite helpful for pmdd (moodiness around your period) but it may not completely fix it. You should talk to your doctor about your symptoms. An ssri like Prozac (fluoxetine) could be helpful but you need tone checked out to make sure nothing else is going on. ...Read more

Con't BP II vs PMDD? Can I still have PMDD symptoms w/out period? BFing for 14mths but 14 days of stability followed by 14 days mood swings ea mth

Unclear: PMDD is not usually confused with Bipolar II. If you are breastfeeding and not having periods then it is not PMDD. PMDD is very specific in its relationship to the menstrual cycle. I would schedule a visit with your primary care doctor or psychiatrist and ask for an evaluation. Post partum depression and bipolar screening can be done to help you sort this out. ...Read more

I'm 40 years old im sweating really bad always hot...It can be super cold and, im still hot and sweating....Also with mood swings...Is this, menopause?

Not sure...: Go to your gynecologist. Are you still getting your period? They can do blood tests to help know if you are menopausal. If so, you might be a candidate for hormone replacement, but that requires discussion with your doctor. There are some other medical problems that could cause you to feel so hot and have increased sweating--let your doctor check you out. Good luck to you! ...Read more

Taking nexito 20, qutipin 100 for 6 months with addition of d-veniz 50 for last 10 days. Still having depression and mood swings too often. What to do?

Depression: Your post shows that you're in India so it's best that you follow up w/your Family Doc or Psychiatrist there. Nexito is Peruvian brand of escitalopram (http://goo. Gl/Eb1OTt). Qutipin is Chilean or South Korean brand of quetiapine (http://goo. Gl/HMU23t). Veniz is Myanmarian brand of venlafaxine (http://goo. Gl/K8t9wq). There are many other options besides these three. Also ask about counseling, too. ...Read more

I have long periods but had a short one & been pukey, tired, mood swings, & spotting a week off & on with a negative test. Possibly pregnant still?

Get help: You sound like you need some support. Home pregnancy tests are very reliable. Do you really want to be pregnant? You list that you have been pregnant 2x but no births. It is emotionally very difficult to be trying and not getting pregnant. Talk to your ob/gyn and ask where you can get additional emotional support. Best wishes. ...Read more

I take Celexa (citalopram) 40mg for mood and anxiety. Is there a natural supplement I can also take along with it? I am still having some mood swings and anxiety.

Valerian: You could try valerian. However, if you have been on celexa (citalopram) for a while, you might ask your doctor about switching antidepressants. Sometimes a different one, even in the same class, could be more effective for any given person. ...Read more

On Oct 17th I had a mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted, still bleeding and cramping. Mood swings are diabolical. Help, should I get it removed?

Mirena (levonorgestrel): Irregular bleeding is common in the first 3-6 weeks after insertion. The locally acting Progesterone begins to thin out the endometrial lining which is what ultimately leads to the absent or light periods. Mood swings are not likely related as the dose of Progesterone is so low it normally does not have systemic effects. You may just want to give it some time to see if you adjust. ...Read more

Been on the pill for almost a year. Why do I still get PMS? Not every month bt sometimes I get horrible mood swings a few days before my placebo pills

Evals needed: Someper-period symptoms - esp mood ones - can be unrelated to hormones. Consider a clinical psych eval for mood and maybe therapy. Also, a OBGYN eval may be useful. BC is not the only help out there. Hope this helps. ...Read more

It: It depends on whether you have missed your period and when you took your tests. As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more

I am now 14 days overdue on my period, I've had all the pregnancy symptoms & mood swings but a home test has come back negative! Cud I still be pregnant?

Yep: Those tests are not 100% accurate - especially early on. You're going to need to recheck things in a week or two. If this is not a pregnancy you planned or want, you need to talk to a professional sooner rather than later. ...Read more

Doubtful.: If you have had a period since the last time you've had sex, and you have had a negative pregnancy test. It is doubtful that you are pregnant. If you continue to have problems, consult your Ob/Gyn.
