Do you crave on foods whenever you're about to have your period?

Sorry to all the men out there but this question is thrown to all the woman in mylot. I'm not sure if you've had this feeling, whenever you are close to having your menstrual cycle you have the urge to eat foods you like. I get this often and I'm not sure if others experience this too.

I really don't tend to have any food cravings at the beginning of my period, but I find that as it is coming to an end, there will be some foods that I will crave. The one that I find that I crave the most is chocolate and also protein. I think that the reason that I crave these things during my period is because I believe I get a little bit anemic and these foods will help a little bit with the anemia that I experience.

I DO!!!! omgoodness I am so bad haha. starting about three days before I start my cycle I start eating like crazy. I eat at least twice as much as I usually do. I crave everything and anything I like to eat and sometimes when I get them or start eating them they just don't sound good or taste as good as I want them to. It kinda sucks and is a little disappointing

i really never craved anything when i got my period (just lost my appetite!), even when i was pregnant. i had a partial hysterectomy 9 years ago and haven't had my period since then and my dr said my estrogen levels are good yesterday when i saw him so it means i am not in menopause just yet.
