Why does it feel like you can never get drunk during your menstrual period?

Beats me: I have never had this complaint from a woman patient before. There is no reason i can think of as to why a menstrual period would reduce any alcohol effect. However, drinking to get drunk is not generally a good thing, particularly if you are doing it every time you are having your period. I would strongly suggest talking to a counselor about your drinking.
