In brief: Estrogen& thinking
Well, take a look at the internet graphs for hormones and cycle.
Estrogen is lowest during period and at ovulation, in a perfect cycle this is two weeks in.Progesterone is high during the time you are talking about.Guess it could be this having an effect. We really no very little about hormones and what they truly do, especially in us women. Go figure! all i can re: get a little extra sleep:).
