Any of my fellow menstruating individuals notice changes in symptoms throughout their cycle? For example, I know the first couple of days of my period I have massive amounts of energy and motivation.

      Oh yeah that’s totally a thing. ADHD tends to het way worse just before or during your period. It can be ROUGH.

      Yup I was fascinated to learn about adhd’s hormone highjacking as it were. Anyone else take stimulant meds that have messed with their cycle or caused them severe menstrual pain?

        @Grace123456 I just started on Adderall and my cycle started getting messed up shortly thereafter! Good to know!

      Well maybe when your on your period your mood and energy is better cuz me before my period I'm so sleepy but as soon as I start I'm in such better upbeat mood

        @Bridgette that's a good point, didn't think of it that way

      Tbh my period is so erratic sometimes I get it but for like months and months I won’t. Maybe my birth control. Usually I’m really angry hungry emotional beginning my period

      Oh geez I'm literally the opposite of this. I always sleep 12 hours the day before I start, have low energy the first two days, then I'm alright the last two days. If I don't sleep that 12 hours before, I'm a wreck the whole time I'm on the rag.
