My GF seems to have more extreme anxiety... bad panic attacks when she's about to get her period. Are there any studies on this?

Yes, somewhere :-). The week before a women gets her period hormone fluctuations can make her more anxious. It's listed as a symptom of PMS. Not all women experience it. I do! The week before my period I am anxious and irritable.
