Hi there, thanks for asking. the symptoms you mentioned can be a part of PMS or peri-menopausal symptoms. Headaches, change in mood, etc may happen in 3 to 6 percent of women in the child bearing age (in the reproductive stage). In many cases they are easily manageable and doctors usually give a medication from the class of SSRI to cover the symptoms. Fortunately they are manageable with low dose of medication and/or taking medication just in the last ten days of the period. Best wishes.
