Are mood swings part of menopause?

Yes, they are a relatively common symptom seen in perimenopausal women – women who are transitioning between their reproductive years and menopause (the life stage when a woman is no longer able to conceive). Once menopause occurs – defined as starting twelve months (one full year) after your last period – estrogen levels stabilize and mood swings will improve.
