In brief: Insomnia

I understand your discomfort.
Falling of Hormone-Progesterone around the period can cause sleep problem. Drinking Alcohol at night can cause awakening at 1-2 am. Unresolved emotional conflicts with the husband , children, and other family members may cause anxiety and depression and affect the sleep. Sleep cycle goes through NREM and REM- 5 times during night. Best sleep is first 90 minutes.
