I have noticed that on days 28-4 my memory is awful. I have also noticed that during this period if I consume alcohol, I seem become intoxicated rapidly, and forget things much more than I normally would drinking the same amount. I tried to look at charts, but could not really work out a reason, as during this phase all the hormone levels are low. I found some research that suggests that oestrogens may affect memory in post menopausal women, but wondered if you knew anything more specific to my query? This is purely out of interest, I do not have any exams or classes for biology... Thanks!
