very tired after ovulation till period
I am 46 six years old and I notice that I am getting very tired after ovulation up until my period starts. I also get depressed/emotional and as soon as my period starts my mood lifts.

What is the cause and how can I rectify it.

You are probably getting near the menopause and a lack of oestrogen may be causing your symptoms. HRT might help. Premenstrual mood swings are very common. In younger women, the Pill is often helpful.
