Yes I did have some bleeding. Be sure that you tell your physician. Mine denied catigorically that the two could be connected. However, I did some reading and while I could't come withing too concrete, I know that brain norepinephrin, which is what we are dealing with here stimulates production of LH (Lutenizing Hormone) which in turn produces estrogen. Also the molecular structures of norepinephrin and the hormone estradiol are VERY similar in structure.
I don't know if that helps, but let me know how you make out. Oh ... exactly where were you in your cycle, how many days since your lastmensrural period?
