Allegedly, oral contraceptives can sometimes help the hormone fluctuations which influence moodswings.  Some women who have PCOS suffer from anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, etc. It doesn’t affect me as much–so traditional meds that help those issues could help.

I take lexapro to help manage my anxiety, but I don’t know that it’s related to my PCOS.

Do you carb-binge by any chance? Some research has shown that low-carbohydrate diets produce evidence of changes in brain-serotonin function (which controls mood).

I’ve found that on days I eat a lot of carbs I tend to get angry more easily. Try cutting back a little and seeing if it helps! 🙂

That’s true. People with PCOS are really sensitive to carbs and tend to have blood sugar issues.
