So my moods are definitely hormonally challenged! It is pretty predictable. My SO and I fight about once or twice a month…around the same times :p This month he said – stay away from me until it goes away! Lol. Poor guy and poor me :p
I have heard other girls self sequester themselves from their bf’s voluntarily during certain times of the month.
I used to think this was crazy but now that I am more conscious of how emotional I really get – maybe this is good?
What are your ladies experiences?
Do you get moody at certain times of the month? How do you and your SO handle it?
This is meant in a light-hearted kind of way. I’m not terribly bothered as I have come to realize such is a fact of life.

@gut_feeling: I definitely get moody! Everything makes me cry at around that time, and I get angry at the slightest irritation! Luckily my Fiance knows (more or less) my cycle so he is especially forgiving and gentle with me around that time of the month… even if i’m kinda of a big meanie to him.
And, it is definitely a good thing that you are more conscious of it!

Oh crap. One every three months I turn into a rageaholic. It. Is. Horrible. I always warn Darling Husband about it, and he knows to tred lightly. I can go from rage to sobbing in a matter or seconds. I HATE it.
Thankfully Darling Husband is an absolute sweetheart about it, and very understanding.

My moods are generally pretty even. I’m on hormonal birth control but this month was pretty bad for some reason. My husband is deployed so that might have played a part, but I was angry as hell during my period this month. Dunno what it was.
Generally though, I’m pretty even tempered, nothing extreme.

i have pmdd. that’s how bad my hormones get around my menstrual cycle. i recently got onto a birth control after not being on it for 3 years (i’m on lutera) and it seems to sort of help my pmdd but i can’t tell if it will get better as the months go by.
my Fiance has learned to not take anything i say or the way i act very personally for a week or two out of the month. it’s not fair to him at all, but he knows that it’s not something i can always control. it really sucks. i hate not being in control of my mood, my hormones or my anger. i have taken st. john’s wort for a natural mood enhancer and it did help a little with prolonged use.
ahhhhh the beauty of being a woman 😉 😉
