Period. I'm just curious if it can cause severe mood swings and irritability during your period?

In brief: Yes, hormones.

There is a profound drop in estrogen before a period.
This definitely affects mood, in some, more so than others. There are several low dose ssri drugs given for 10days in a woman's cycle, which defintely improve mood.
