In brief: Stress

Some women can get premenstrual symptoms with periods that are very stressful to them. This can be associated with increase in BP.
Also some women crave for salty food premenstrually that can also contribute to increase in BP. Then premenstrual symptoms resolve with period and BP becomes normal.
