Is it just part of 'being a woman' that I'm at the constant mercy of my hormones, or is there anything that can be done to tame it?

Pmt seems to get worse the older I get (I'm nearly 38) the switch from chilled and happy to wanting to rip someone's head off is practically psych-assessment-worthy! And it's the same for a lot of women I know!
Is it possible to balance hormones out a bit??

Going on the contraceptive pill sorted me out.

Did the pill not make you gain weight though digerd?

Decades since I was on the Pill but didn't make me gain weight. Now on HRT and no weight gain either. TBH I think it's what you put in your mouth food-wise that does it, not hormones.

Cut out caffeine and try to eat low sugar - caffeine esp affects hormones.
