When your hormones are out of balance, so is your mood. Fluctuating hormone levels, especially estradiol and progesterone in females and testosterone in males, is associated with mood swings. Thus, this issue is very common around menopause and andropause. Mood swings can be very disruptive with regards to your quality of life and relationships. As a hormone specialist, Dr. Fontaine is often able to significantly decrease your mood swings with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, proper nutrition and exercise.
