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.

yes, i have been dealing with the same exact thing. I also have anxiety which makes the symptoms worse at times.. I am currently wearing a holter monitor because i had an episode that lasted 2 and half weeks during which i bleed just enough to see when i wiped thay day after my dr visit i started my actual period and they have pretty much gone completely away. please let me know what you find out..
