Being emotional this time in your luteal phase is rather normal, as this time of your cycle is known for hormonal roller-coaster due to PMS.
Over 90% of women say they get a premenstrual syndrome about a week or two before their period. PMS is a combination of symptoms, such as headaches, bloating, and mood swings. They can be either mild or quite severe and interrupt your daily activities. Women get it in the luteal phase after their ovulation before the period when the levels of estrogen and progesterone suddenly begins to drop causing emotional swings. At the same time, this affects the levels of serotonin, a happiness hormone, so you may feel quite moody, changes in your sleep patterns, and appetite. Food cravings in the PMS appear due to low serotonin as well.
You cannot get rid of the drop in hormones, but you can definitely prepare your body to this shift and make the transition ovulation-period safer and less stressful for you.
7 great remedies to ease your mood swings during PMS:
Sleep well, plan your day in a way that you get at least 8 hours of sleep, as your body will rest during this time.
Practice deep slow breathing
Meditate and have some relaxing yoga exercises
Have a massage
Get more physical exercise
Walk somewhere in the fresh air
And avoid alcohol, caffeine and too much sugar or salt.
These simple steps will soothe your moodiness and let you go through the PMS with little stress.
