Turning red in the face before menstruation...??

Right before that time of the month, I often turn red in the face in situations I am usually comfortable in. Any idea what this is and what I can do about it? It's really frustrating and it holds me back from things. I feel uncomfortable when I'm usually comfortable then i get embarrassed, so I get even redder! Help!

I disagree with the comment above. I too experience facial blushing in situations that don't normally cause embarrassment, right before or during my period. And yes, it is even more embarrassing when you can feel yourself turning red. During and before menstruation our bodies are going through many hormonal shifts which effect us physically and emotionally. Suggesting that someone is blushing before their period because they are afraid the other person will find out they are menstruating is just silly.
