2. Mood Swings
When it comes to your levels of estrogen, you already know that it is important when it comes to your period. In addition, estrogen levels also affect your mood. Just think about your menstrual cycle and all the ups and downs that come before, during, and possibly even after your period ends. All of these changes and swings in mood are often caused by the spikes and dips in your hormone levels.
If you have a low amount of estrogen, the balance of your other hormones can become out of whack as well. This can cause all sorts of issues within the body, including intense mood swings. You may be feeling happy one minute and extremely sad the next and not even know why. When it comes to the roller coaster of your moods, if you suffer from intense unexplainable feelings chances are that your hormone levels are to blame.
