Hormones and Borderline Personality Features.
Ovarian Hormones as a Source of Fluctuating Biological Vulnerability in Borderline Personality Disorder
TLDR
Preliminary evidence suggests ovarian hormones may exert strong effects on BPD symptom expression, and further research is warranted examining mechanisms and developing interventions.

Differential Effects of the Menstrual Cycle on Reactive and Proactive Aggression in Borderline Personality Disorder
TLDR
Naturally cycling individuals with BPD may be at elevated risk for perimenstrual worsening of a range of interpersonally reactive symptoms, including reactive aggression, whereas proactive aggression may occur more in phases characterized by less emotional and cognitive vulnerability and greater reward sensitivity.
Reproductive steroids and ADHD symptoms across the menstrual cycle
Differential effects of the menstrual cycle on reactive and proactive aggression in borderline personality disorder.
TLDR
Naturally cycling individuals with BPD may be at elevated risk for luteal worsening of a range of interpersonally reactive symptoms, including reactive aggression, whereas proactive aggression may occur more in phases characterized by less emotional and cognitive vulnerability and greater reward sensitivity.
Perimenstrual exacerbation of symptoms in borderline personality disorder: evidence from multilevel models and the Carolina Premenstrual Assessment Scoring System
TLDR
Females with BPD may be at elevated risk for perimenstrual worsening of emotional symptoms in the menstrual cycle, and longitudinal studies with fine-grained hormonal measurement as well as hormonal experiments are needed to determine the pathophysiology of perimanstrual exacerbation in BPD.

Estrogens and relationship jealousy
TLDR
The implications, at least for females, are that any evolved psychological, affective, or behavioral dispositions regarding reproduction-related relationships are potentially moderated by estradiol, and that the use of synthetic hormones may disrupt this relation.
A comparison of the effect of estrogen with or without progesterone on mood and physical symptoms in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
It is suggested that for most postmenopausal women, the use of hormones will not be associated with clinically significant changes in mood or physical symptoms, which weighs favorably into the cost-benefit ratio for women considering hormone replacement therapy.

TLDR
Two examples of the action of estrogen on central neurotransmission are discussed in terms of their immediate clinical importance for the treatment of depressive symptoms, their use as powerful models for investigations on the steroid control of central neurotransmitter mechanisms, and the role of estrogen as “Nature's” psychoprotectant.
