I'm going to chime in on this topic too. My anxiety/depression/OCD is WAY worse during ovulation. I have about 2 1/2 weeks of hell, then as soon as my periods comes, I'm like a different person. No anxiety/depression/OCD at all. It's nuts. I absolutely agree that our hormones play a big roll. I"m seeing my doc on Wednesday and I'll be bringing this up. It's gotten to the point where I can't function normally anymore. I'm 33, so I could definitely be in a perimenopause state. It's not uncommon for us 30 somethings to start that early.
This will be interesting to follow. Thanks for the insight. I have been wondering about this connection this entire month, mostly because the symptoms are soooo bad!
