Appetite changes: Common with hormonal tides. To establish a healthy relationship with the effects of progesterone which rises after ovulation, plan your meals accordingly. Progesterone influences how women's sleep, mood and appetite. Talk to a gynecologist who is adept in treating premenstrual changes such as PMDD and sleep disturbances. I'm sorry that this physiologic event becomes the butt of sexist jokes!
