Every single period the first day or two I can’t sleep. I am trying to sleep now but it’s futile. Is this a treatable thing or do I just have to accept two days a month I will have to walk around as a sleep deprived zombie?
I'm the same and often around ovulation too. I have got to the stage where I just put on a podcast or audiobook on my phone, really low and listen to that. I can doze a bit when I'm not counting the minutes til my alarm goes off and even if I don't sleep I feel more rested. Hope you find some sort of solution.
