A woman’s monthly cycle for example, is considered as the physical trigger responsible for offsetting hormone induced mood swings. The sensation occurs because just before a woman’s period, a reduction in estrogen and progesterone affects the brain’s neurotransmitters regulation and causes mood swings.
