In brief: See the right doc

Feeling "suicidal and uncontrolled anger" is a serious thing.

See a psychiatrist and consider meds, especially in the short term so that you stay safe..
But if you're proactive and want to really help yourself, you might want to find someone who can help tease out and address the connection between hormones and mood. Think "functional medicine", which can be a good way to do that.
