This is probably what is known as a host of possible symptoms called PMS, which can happen 7-14 days before your period begins. I found a good informational site on this and as you can see under emotional symptoms, yours are listed. There is a lot of helpful information there.

Many women experience this relative increase in anger just before the onset of their period.

Generally speaking, women are angry for about ten days before their period and again for about ten days after their period.  Of course, they're also angry during their period.

The specific anger about which you're speaking is what's known as the homicidal rage of PMS.  PMS has been successfully used as a defense in murder cases and is regarded as a mental health issue.

Men have known about this condition since birth; for some reason it escaped the attention of young girls in the same household.

As young men become involved with young women, as they begin their families, they (the young men) learn to avoid the homicidal maniac during these slight increases of her natural anger.

It's been theorized that as a possible solution to the problem of PMS, massive injections of testosterone and penile implants might help to alleviate the symptoms.

Hope this helps.
