Sex hormones are tied to your feelings, so changes in your hormone levels can lead to mood swings. It’s no wonder that teenagers are often described as gloomy. For women, PMS, gestation, and menopause (the year after your last period), can lead to unexpected moods.

The biggest contributors to mood swings include diet, sleep, and substance abuse.
