In brief: Ovulation

Testosterone levels are highest in females during ovulation, which usually is converted to estrogen ands progesterone.
But this higher testosterone level causes an increase in libido.

In brief: No

Estrogen and testosterone levels drop before menses.
They peak near ovulation time.
