New models for menstrual cycle-related mood disorders provide unique opportunities to gain insight into the processing of emotional information and the regulation of mood state by reproductive steroids. This paper reviews the role of reproductive steroids in affect regulation and in premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMD), parses PMD into component processes that suggest potential mediating neurocircuitry, and highlights the importance of and potential contributors to the differential sensitivity… Expand
Progesterone, reproduction, and psychiatric illness.
TLDR
Overall, the literature does not support an association between exogenous progesterone and negative mood in the general population, but does indicate that subset of women may be vulnerable to such effects. Expand
Gonadal steroids and affective symptoms during in vitro fertilization: Implication for reproductive mood disorders
TLDR
This study suggests that the mechanism underlying the role of estrogen in reproductive-related mood disorders involves an abrupt and precipitous drop in its plasma level that can precipitate negative mood states. Expand
Sex hormones and biomarkers of neuroprotection and neurodegeneration: implications for female reproductive events in bipolar disorder
TLDR
Clinical aspects of reproductive cycle events in women with bipolar disorder and preclinical studies are critically reviewed, with a focus on the functional interactions between sex hormones and biomarkers of neuroprotection and neurodegeneration that are thought to be involved in the neurobiology of bipolar disorder. Expand
The role of ovarian steroids in affective disorders
TLDR
Preliminary findings suggest that an intrinsic cellular difference confers a differential response to ovarian steroids in women with PMDD compared with those who do not experience this condition. Expand
The cytokine-hormone axis – the link between premenstrual syndrome and postpartum depression
TLDR
Hypotheses are developed as to why the symptoms experienced in PMS often subside during pregnancy yet may recur and be exacerbated after birth, giving rise to the symptoms of postpartum depression. Expand
Neurobehavioral impact of menopause on mood
The menopausal transition is a time of risk for mood change ranging from distress to minor depression to major depressive disorder in a vulnerable subpopulation of women in the menopausal transition.Expand
4.09 – Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder
Premenstrual mood changes have been described since the time of Hippocrates. RT Frank specifically identified physical, psychological, and behavioral changes corresponding to monthly changes inExpand
Patterns of mood changes throughout the reproductive cycle in healthy women without premenstrual dysphoric disorders
TLDR
It is an important finding that there is a consistent pattern observable in the fluctuation of psychological symptoms accompanying the female reproductive cycle, and statistically significant increases in psychometric scores are still small. Expand
Reproductive Hormones and Stages of Life in Women: Moderators of Mood and Cardiovascular Health
TLDR
In this chapter, menstrually related mood disorders are described, including the role of reproductive hormones and their metabolites, and evidence is provided that histories of abuse or histories of depression predict clinically meaningful subgroups of women with these disorders. Expand
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder: burden of illness and treatment update.
TLDR
Several effective treatment options exist, including serotonergic antidepressant medications and an oral contraceptive that contains ethinyl estradiol and drosperinone and other hormones that suppress ovulation, anxiolytics, cognitive therapy, chasteberry and calcium may be helpful. Expand

Estrogen–serotonin interactions: implications for affective regulation
TLDR
The effects of estrogen on central serotonin systems in animals and humans as inferred from studies demonstrating the impact of gender, estrus (or menstrual) cycle, or hormone manipulation are summarized. Expand
Changes in plasma hormones across the menstrual cycle in patients with menstrually related mood disorder and in control subjects.
TLDR
The data suggest that premenstrual syndrome does not represent a simple hormonal deficiency and that the cited rationales for several of the proposed treatments are of questionable merit. Expand
Mood, Sexuality, Hormones, and the Menstrual Cycle. II. Hormone Levels and Their Relationship to the Premenstrual Syndrome
TLDR
A comparison of hormone levels in women with high and low degrees of cyclical mood change showed no difference in progesterone, estradiol, testosterone, or androstenedione. Expand
Prospective assessment of menstrually related mood disorders.
TLDR
In a preliminary application of this measure to 20 women with self-diagnosed premenstrual syndrome, eight had a mean depression rating during the week before menstruation that was 30% higher than During the week after cessation of menstruation. Expand
Differential behavioral effects of gonadal steroids in women with and in those without premenstrual syndrome.
TLDR
In women with premenstrual syndrome, the occurrence of symptoms represents an abnormal response to normal hormonal changes. Expand
State-dependent alterations in the perception of life events in menstrual-related mood disorders.
TLDR
The authors examined the reporting of daily life events by women with prospectively confirmed menstrual-related mood disorder and asymptomatic control subjects, finding that the patient group reported significantly more negative life events than the control group. Expand
Aging-Related Changes in Ovarian Hormones, Their Receptors, and Neuroendocrine Function
TLDR
The literature on the causes and consequences of alterations in steroid hormones, their neural receptors, and their interactions on reproductive senescence are reviewed, focusing on rodent models in current use for understanding the mechanisms of menopause in women. Expand
Lack of effect of induced menses on symptoms in women with premenstrual syndrome.
TLDR
Mifepristone consistently induced menses in women with premenstrual syndrome, and the relation of the events of the late luteal phase to the symptoms of PMS was evaluated in a blinded fashion. Expand

TLDR
There is an important role for ERβ-mediated estrogen signaling in the processing of emotional behavior in females, and local increase of 5-hydroxytryptamine 1a receptor expression in medial amygdala may contribute to these changes. Expand
