Anyone have palpitations before or during menstrual period or during ovulation?

Kind of an odd question (and not sure how many people will say "I do!" to my question), but I'm just curious as to those here who notice palpitations or have more of them around their period?

I have had palpitations now for around six or seven years (yes, I've had tons of cardiac testing and workups in which they show some PVCs but every cardiologist tells me they are normal) ... They are sometimes terrifying and other times just a very annoying nuisance that I wish I didn't have. What I've started noticing is I've had them more around the time I ovulate and then a few days before I have my period and then sometimes during my period.

One of my cardiologists thinks some of the palps may be due to hormones/hormone changes.

Anyone have palpitations or pvcs and do you take any kind of herbs or supplements for it and have noticed those helping? I do take magnesium and CoQ10 for heart health. I also take fish oil and primrose oil.

Thanks for your reply!

I am taking a beta blocker for it (most people take a beta blocker for high blood pressure though my blood pressure is not high), but it doesn't always help. I'm on a beta blocker for chronic tachycardia and palps.

I don't consume caffeine. And I do have chocolate, but only in the form of a vegan/gluten free chocolate chip cookie once a day or sometimes twice a day, but now I'm so worried about having palps that I've even cut out having any kind of chocolate whatsoever, even in cookie form! LOL. It does suck to have them. And it is hard when someone tells you not to worry about them, even if a doctor tells you, because that's almost impossible to do!
