Science confirms a woman's mood fluctuates during month

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- It's not an excuse fellas, a new study shows a woman's mood does fluctuate at different times of the month.

MRI scans showed the area of the brain that processes emotional information was very active during the midpoint of a woman's menstrual cycle, a time when hormones are at their peak.

Experts say this study adds evidence to the theory that hormones play a role in processing emotions.

The study was presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
