The same thing has happened for the past several months - in the week before my period, a day or two I'll get really angry and emotional and snap at someone, usually my boyfriend. When I get angry I often (gently) bite myself or hit something. After snapping at him, I get really upset because I start to feel bad for being angry, and I burst out into tears. I'm sick of this happening, and I'm sick of doing this to him and my friends and family. Sometimes I'll even be crying and then stop and start laughing, literally. Again, this only happens right before my period. I feel weak and horrible and unworthy of being loved when this happens. Is there anything I can do?

Have you talked to your gynecologist about this? If not, that's the best person to go to in terms of trying to find some ways of regulating what's happening.

No, I haven't. I haven't been to see her since this has started happening, but I'll be sure to bring this up at my next appointment. Would hormonal birth control help at all?

That really depends, some people it will while others it won't. Your doctor will be able to make a better judgment on that though since they'll have your medical history, etc. If the appointment's not soon, you may want to see about getting in sooner depending on how much you feel you can handle, okay?
