Many women get mood swings especially during their Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) phase. This occurs due to decrement in both estrogen and progesterone levels. As a result, there is a decrement in the production of neurotransmitters namely serotonin and dopamine. Both of these neurotransmitters are well-known for causing good feelings. Worst is when women get pain and cramps during menstruation.
