Numbness in leg
I have for quite a while now suffered from numbness in my left leg when having my period. It is very uncomfortable. I did mention it to my gynae previously and he said it is a nerve being pinched. Could this have something to do with my cycle (it is not always - but moslty - when menstruating) or must I rather discuss this with my GP? It is causing me to loose sleep as this feeling is really irritaitng and sometimes painful.

I cannot see that this is related to hormones or to your cycle. I would suggest that you discuss it with your GP.
