Why do I get emotional on my period? I understand it's my hormones, but what are the physiological processes responsible for the heightened arousal?

In brief: Increase in blood

Flow causing pelvic congestion during menses may explain the feeling of being hornier during this period.
Same explanation in male - the increase in blood flow in the male genitalia when they take the blue pill increases their libido and promotes erection. Take care!
