It's quite common for women who are going through their "monthlies" to have an increase in their symptoms. It's thought it's due to the increase in hormone production and the fact that the body is in a sort of chaos with the infection - so it causes further chaos basically.
Of course, it could be a herx, depending on how long you were ill previously, what abx you were on and how long you were on them. Many times, when a person switches from abx to herbs, they herx quickly as the herbs can reach "deeper" than the abx and will kill off more bacteria.
Or you could be hitting a different infection than the abx addressed.
Or it could be a combination of any of the above. I would encourage you to increase your detoxing to see if that does help.
