Why is my sex drive so much higher right before my period?

Mine is too...at least right now. gahh I'm going crazy. Heh.

But anyway. I'm sure it has to do with hormonal changes. Though I thought it made more sense to be hornier soon after your period when you're ovulating..biology is weird.

It's your hormones going haywire because it's your body saying that it wants to mate (or to put in biology terms, to reproduce.) Estrogen goes up but the truth is no one knows exactly this happens. Everyone's biology is so different.

If you make the choice to act on your hornyness, just make sure you get protected. *thumbs up*
