do you notice a correlation between seizure frequency and PMS/menstruating? (sorry, guys)

Or if you're a guy who lives with a woman with epilepsy, have you observed this?

I am 30 years old. I've noticed that PMS actually exists (I thought it was a myth), and I'm more sensitive in every way just before that time of the month. Yee-hah! (okay, not really yee-hah, but if people don't talk about stuff, folks may think they're the only ones encountering this stuff. (or maybe it's only me, but I kind of doubt it)

Hi Sarah,
Oh yes! My seizure activity gets MUCH worse when I'm ovulating right up to when my period comes.  Then things quiet down for about 10 days, and it starts all over again.  There is actually a seizure disorder called catamenial seizures.  They are seizures that only occur during certain "times of the month".
Quite common.  I'm sure there are lots of gals here who can relate as well!
