Reasons / Causes

Sleep disorders cause progesterone dependent resistance to hypothermic effects of melatonin during luteal phase. Impaired secretion of estrogen and progesterone affects the neural mechanism in sleep and awake regions in the brain. Also the inverse relationship between progesterone and prostaglandins has a negative influence on sleep cycles.

Neurotransmitter Serotonin plays a major role in controlling mood and anxiety. Estrogen influences the functioning of many neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine and noradrenaline. During the luteal phase there is a decrease in the level of estrogen which leads to development of PMS symptoms. It also decreases the activity of monoamine oxidase A and B enzymes in the brain region. Both serotonin and estrogen work together in brain regions associated with mood regulations. Estrogen-progesterone imbalance causes mood swings and emotional instability in women.
