In brief: Possibly

The phrase "having a good cry" suggests that crying can actually make you feel physically and emotionally better, which many people believe.
There is a type of chemical in emotional tears that acts as an endorphin that reduces pain and works to improve mood. Crying bouts are also triggered by hormonal irregularities, which are triggered naturally or by ocps.
