Experiencing extreme mood swings all day, 18.5 yrs old, just finished periods. Is this normal ?

I m 18.5 years old, and my period just ended a week ago. I ve been experiencing extreme mood swings all day today. Justabout two hours ago i was really horny and then i was super calm even when there was too much noise around me, which is unlike me, and now I m suddenly very angry and just can t seem to cool down. I have exams in two days, but i just can t concentrate. This doesn t happen regularly, but i experience these symptoms once every few months. Is that normal? I m not sexually active yet, just so you know.

Welcome to HCM

The features you have described as mood swings, feeling horny, irritability, poor concentration that too don't occur regularly. These symptoms occur at intervals. Most likely these are part of Anxiety. It may occur due to hormone changes also.
You should try to control the symptoms by relaxation exercises, deep breathing exercises, yoga or meditation.
If symptoms increase in severity I will advise you to visit a Psychiatrist. Various medicines like Versidep (Flupentixole and Melitracen combination) or Propranolol can be taken for episodic relief of anxiety and also these medicines are non sedating and non addictive.
