Does anyone else notice the increases in seizures during that time of the month?

This is for gals only...or any Male caregivers:

I have epilepsy due to TBI temperal lobe damage. I have noticed during my time of the month my seizure have gotten worse. I went from having them almost controlled to 3 yesterday and 4 today.

Pre period epilepsy is called catamenial epilepsy... I have that. Day or two before time of month I will get seizure. 

I have read about hormonal involvement in epilepsy. I have not had any drop seizures since starting extra strength high dose CBD hemp oil.
