    Abstract : Introduction: Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) is a condition that affects about 2-6% of women of reproductive age. The relation to ovarian steroids is apparent as symptoms are absent during anovulatory cycles. READ MORE

  2. 2. Allopregnanolone effects in women : clinical studies in relation to the menstrual cycle, premenstrual dysphoric disorder and oral contraceptive use

    Author : Erika Timby; Marie Bixo; Torbjörn Bäckström; Anna-Carin N Wihlbäck; C Neill Epperson; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) affects 3–8% of women in fertile ages. Combined oral contraceptives (OCs) are widely used and some users experience adverse mood effects. The cyclicity of PMDD symptoms coincides with increased endogenous levels of allopregnanolone after ovulation. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the influence of serotonin- and sex steroid-related genetic variation on mood, anxiety, personality, autism and transsexualism

    Author : Susanne Henningsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : serotonin; 5-HTTLPR; TPH2; 5-HT3; sex steroids; androgen receptor; estrogen receptor; genetics; gene-gene interaction; social phobia; anxiety; premenstrual dysphoric disorder; depression; personality; autism; transsexualism; amygdala; emotional perception; life events;

    Abstract : Background: The neurotransmitter serotonin has been related to mood and anxiety, and variation in genes that encode important members of the serotonergic system may hence affect mood- and anxiety-related traits. Sex steroids influence brain development, and variation in genes encoding androgen and estrogen receptors, or enzymes needed for sex steroid synthesis, may be of importance for both personality traits and risk for psychiatric disorders.

  5. 5. The Effect of Steroid Hormones in the Female Brain During Different Reproductive States

    Abstract : Women are twice as likely as men to suffer from depression and anxiety disorders and have an increased risk of onset during periods associated with hormonal changes, such as the postpartum period and the menopausal transition. Furthermore, some women seem more sensitive to normal hormone fluctuations across the menstrual cycle, since approximately 3-5% suffers from premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). READ MORE
