Objectives: Etiquette and behaviour depend on hormonal ambiance. This communication renders a link between women’s behaviour which deviates from normal because of certain hormonal imbalance. Methods/Analysis: Interpretation of women’s behaviour was accomplished on the basis of existing literatures and researches. Various endogenous molecules such as serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, endorphins, prolactin and cortisol have diversified effects on mood and behaviour. Findings: The emergence of anxiety, anger, stress, depression or any psychotic change has irrefutable relationship with certain endogenous molecule. With the help of existing literatures and researches, it has been inferred that deficiency of serotonin is a leading cause of depression, while dopamine deficiency can plunk a woman into non-impulsive, emotionless behaviour. Excess of cortisol can lead to the feeling of stress while hyperprolactinemia causes prodigious production of milk even in non-pregnant and non-nursing women. It also causes disturbance in libido and irregular menstrual cycles. Endorphins are endogenous neuropeptides that reduce pain and boost pleasure.

A healthy lifestyle can ameliorate the hormonal ambiance; thereby a break through improvement in women’s behaviour can be interposed.
