I've read something about how when estrogen levels are higher, the body burns slightly more fat so around your period you burn a few more calories...not sure on how all this works, but I know I've read it before!

Actually its a natural thing to have your temperature rise during periods.
Following ovulation, there is a rise in your body temperature and your temperature can increase by 0.5 to 1.6 degrees. In fact some people even calculate their ovulation day with the help of their temperature measurement.

I'll try to explain ovulation first in my own words...every month during your monthly cycle, comes a day when you are most fertileand susceptable to pregnancy. This usually occurs on the 14th day of your cycle, if you start counting from the first day of your periods and you have a 28 day cycle. So, during this time , a womens body temperature rises, this a is a known fact.
So, some people , who want to know which is the ovulation time, do so by taking thier temperature everyday and seeing when it reaches its peak.
Yes, even at 42, I have an increased appetite and do not gain weight either. It has something to do with a a surge of testerone and that stimulates the appetite.
