I get really depressed around my period. Is there anything I can do to feel better?

Your mood being affected around your period is a common occurrence for people who menstruate, as your body and its hormones are changing throughout your cycle. Depression is a common feeling around your period, and is tied to premenstrual syndrome (PMS), or in more severe cases, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).


Things that can normally help your mental health, such as exercise and plenty of sleep, can help with this symptom too! For more mental health resources, check out our page: https://www.violetproject.org/mental-health.


However, if you are feeling depressed to the point that it is negatively affecting your life or you are concerned, it is recommended that you talk with a doctor. For some, being put on hormonal birth control pills to control their periods can help minimize symptoms. Other times, a doctor may recommend antidepressants or other forms of treatment. Violet can always help you find individualized resources as needed too!
