Is it normal to have worse depression not only before my period but also around ovulation? Has anyone else experienced this? Please share your thoughts!

yes! It is completely normal. Often I will feel the depressive thoughts creeping back in and be scared that I am spiralling again but I will check my period cycle and realise I am just about to start my period! remember to be kinder to yourself around these times and take it easy! They are just thoughts, they are not a part of you, they will come, they will go, but you will remain and you will be stronger because of it. Hang on in there!
