Hi**** Having my cycle does make me go hi to! Anywhere up to 5 to 7 days pre-and 3 to 5 days post cycle. Talk to your doctor or CDE about what you should do. If you are on a pump-they may recommend a higher temp basil. But it is not an uncommon thing to happen I've heard from others to

I feel ya**** It happens to me some days before and some days after. And some months is like nothing is happening and my BG is perfect. Always keep an eye on those numbers!
