Yes hormones do have a tendency to impact mood. The common hormone-responsive depressive disorders are post natal depression, premenstrual depression and perimenopausal depression. It is a lot more common than you think, and there are resources and medication availble for the management of the same. Hope this helps!

Depression may be caused by many reasons. Hormonal imbalance or change in hormones in the body us one of the cause. It is seen that after birth of the baby, mother can experience depression which is called Post Partum depression. One of the cause is change in hormones in the body. Similarly many experiences mood swings or are in low mood before  the menstrual cycle. Pre and during Menopause there is change in hormones in our body which may have effect on our mood.

Hormonal changes can trigger depressing thoughts and/or can make one vulnerable to depression. Hormonal changes don't cause depression - DEPRESSING THOUGHTS cause depression.
