Depression after menstruation
I don' t really get pms, maybe one morning every month a couple of days before my period starts, I' m a bit anxious. That' s all. But as soon as I' ve finished menstruating - sometimes even on the 4th day already, I get very depressed. Some months it gets so bad that I cannot stop crying all day and it would continue to the following day. Other times I' m just liveless and sad. I' ve been gaining weight the past couple of months, even though I didn' t change my lifestyle. I used to be a road runner who ran 21km' s every Saturday, now I can only do some light exercises and on some days I cannot exercise at all. What is wrong with me?

It sounds like this is more than just a hormonal mood change related to your period. SE if CyberShrink can help.
