Does anyone else experience this?*personal issue*

Like clock work about 1-3 days before I start my period I wake up at night with horrible night sweats. Like I'm saying completely soaked! PJ's and sheets! I usually wake up shivering because of it. I have to get up and change into dry pajamas. I'm usually too tired to change the sheets in the middle of the night so I just wrap myself in a dry blanket and settle back to sleep then wake up in the morning and wash the bedding.
Then as soon as I start my period....the night sweats are gone....until next month!
It started happening about 2 years ago...it just took me a while to realize the pattern and connect it to the few days before I start my period.
Could it just be hormones? Does anyone else experience this?

Other than that, I would visit your family doc and get some blood work done.

I think maybe I will go get my hormone levels checked again, just to be sure.
I dont know what else to do.

I'm in a chemically induced menopause right now as a course of treatment and it SUCKS!!! I can totally relate to the night sweats! I only wish mine were once a month!
Keep us posted!
