That's a very good question. Many studies point to a drop in serotonin throughout the body and neurotransmitter in the brain. There are many factors in why this happens, but one thing is for sure is the natural fluctuations of the reproductive hormones.
Dr. Thy-Jacobs research shows as estrogen and LH peak at ovulation many of the B vitamins and Calcium are metabolised faster. This also continues through the luteal phase.
I understand that feeling of high activity during that time, take advantage of it to get things done, it makes up for the time when all you want to do is lay on the sofa and rest.
