I'm not hysterical, I just had progesterone!


Here, for example, you sit at work and talk in skype with a young man, in whom you are terribly in love and with whom you plan to live happily ever after. But you somehow worry that he probably does not like you, and you try to draw attention from him. The young man honestly writes you a paragraph of compliments, but concurrently notes that he is irritated by direct demands for them. And then you begin to really cry! Cutting down skype! You write to him an essay about how you should part because you do not fit each other! Write a detailed letter about this! Refuse to meet! Two days later, come to your senses, think: "What was that?" And try to establish contact - and you are still very lucky if your interlocutor did not have time to rent the apartment by now, fully agreeing with you that yes, you are not you can be happy together.
Such tragic manifestations do not reach all women, but the risk of conflicts with others is very great. This premenstrual syndrome, a completely officially recognized disease, included in the International Classification of Diseases. The range of possible symptoms associated with PMS is staggering. Women experience headaches and muscle aches, nausea, pain in the mammary glands, fatigue, insomnia, inadequate hunger, they can not concentrate, are anxious, irritable, tearful, etc. According to the University of South Carolina Medical School, at least one a symptom of PMS - most often, behavioral disorders - 85% of women experience monthly. About 5% suffer from premenstrual dysphoric disorder, the most severe form of PMS, in which a woman is forced to take antidepressants, because otherwise her poor state of health combined with panic attacks and mood swings deprives her of the opportunity to work normally and generally maintain social ties.
The causes of all the various physiological symptoms of PMS have not been completely investigated yet, because a whole set of factors is important here: in addition to the hormonal changes proper in the last days of the menstrual cycle, individual genetic features of the woman, her diet, stress levels in her daily life , the amount of alcohol and coffee consumed, and much more. But it can already be considered proven that a key role in the behavioral shifts in PMS is a sharp drop in the level of progesterone before menstruation.
Progesterone is actually needed in order to prevent uterine contractions. In the middle of the cycle, after the egg leaves the ovary, a yellow body forms in its place, which will produce progesterone for two more weeks. If the egg was fertilized, the yellow body will continue to work, and then its function will be intercepted by the placenta, and the level of progesterone will remain high throughout the pregnancy. But if a woman does not become pregnant, then the yellow body stops its work, the level of progesterone drops sharply, and menstruation begins.
Progesterone itself does not affect the psyche. But it turns into an allopregnanolol in the body, and this substance acts in the brain on receptors for gamma-amino-butyric acid.

If this is your case, are you sure that you never dug into someone's private life or did not want to do it? Or that they never stole

    Classification of protozoa. Pathogenic for the human protozoa. Morphology, physiology, ecology, development cycles
  6. Protozoa and viruses
    More recently, viruses have been detected in the simplest ones - Trichomonas vaginalis, Giardia lamblia, Leishmania braziliensis, Eimeria spp. and Babesia spp. All these viruses have similar properties, namely they contain a double-stranded RNA, the size of which is 5-7 kb, and have a spherical or icosahedral shape with a diameter of 30-40 nm. Among the viruses of protozoa better
  7. Parasitic protozoa.
    According to individual systematic groups of Protozoa, parasitic species are distributed unevenly. Types of Sporozoa, Cnidosporidia are completely represented by parasites, among Sarcodina there is only a small number of parasitic amoebae. Quite a lot of parasitized groups are found among infusorians. In the flagellates, whole groups have passed to the parasitic way of life, sometimes very numerous
  8. Simple or detailed?
    You can look at any thing simply. Perhaps the idea is presented with perfect accuracy and with all the details *, but we should be able to grasp its essence as quickly as possible (whatever it is). It is in this that the beauty of a simple picture is expressed: since we can quickly understand, we must just as quickly determine whether there is a meaning or not **. * Only because of the simplicity of something else is
  9. Simple decision making
    A simple choice of two alternatives is known as the dyadic solution (from the Latin word dyas, which means "two"). Dianic decisions represent the first step in bringing order, say, in the list of your priorities. Dyadic solutions are decisions on the type of evaluation of alternative qualities and include the following simple types of choice: yes / no; better / worse; stronger / weaker; more

  16. SIMPLE WOLVECTOMY
    This operation is indicated in cases when the existing lesions of the vulva can not be eliminated by conservative treatment or by local excision. These include common forms of vulvar carcinoma (in situ or microinvasive), Paget's disease and common leukoplakia. Simple vulvectomy, in contrast to radical, does not require the removal of all tissues to the very fascia of the perineum. Before
  17. 2. SIMPLE SHUNTS
    Simple shunts are pathological messages between the right and left halves of the heart, not combined with other vices. Normally, the left part of the heart has higher blood pressure, so most often the discharge occurs from left to right, so that the blood flow through the right heart and pulmonary vessels increases. At a certain size and localization of the pathological message high pressure of the left

    Lawrence Corey Definition. Herpes simplex viruses (HSV-1, HSV-2) (Herpesvirus hominis) cause a variety of infectious diseases that affect the mucous membranes and skin, the central nervous system, and sometimes internal organs. The development of effective antiviral chemotherapeutics that affect HSV increased the clinical importance of rapid recognition of this
