      Yep, mine did last month and I couldn't figure out why until I put two and two together.

      Do you mean your Tinnitus or Hyperacusis, or both Hyperacusis and Tinnitus? And thank you for the reply. ❤️ @Fally

      Both. I noticed my tinnitus went up but also I felt a little bit more sensitive to sound. I believe it's the hormones honestly playing havoc. I remember one of my doctors said to me hormones can spike it so be aware.

      @Fally,
      Thanks so much for the reply. I’ve been having a hard time these past few days, before and during my cycle. My Tinnitus and Hyperacusis spiked, but now I’m pretty sure this is the reason causing it to spike. Again thank you so much and I hope all is going well for you.

      My tinnitus always usually spikes about a week before and during my menstrual cycle, I can always tell my menstrual cycle is about to start. It took a few months for me to realize why my tinnitus gets worse sometimes!

      Yes to both, I would have major Vertigo episodes during my menstrual cycle and would faint followed by vomit everytime without fail, it was horrible. Ever since going on birth control and completely stopping my periods I have not had a major vertigo episode but my T is still unbearable at times

      Yes, my tinnitus spikes a few days before my cycle but settles quickly. If it coincides with a full moon you better leave me alone and stay as far as possible for your own safety...lol...

      The joys of womanhood. Grrrrr

      Get yourself a calendar that shows the moon phases.

      It does at ovulation but mainly justs before my period and during it. Sometimes I can just feel that it got louder and then I see I got my period and instantly just stop worrying about the spike.

      STRESS, high frequency sensorineural loss (birth)
      I have a question for all my fellow sufferer ladies out there on the combined birth control pill:

      I have been on the pill for over a decade now, no problems whatsoever and lots of benefits, mainly the comfort and being in control that it brings. For many months lately, I have taken it without a break AT ALL. Now that I got tinnitus and everyone asks about any medicine you are taking, the pill is all I think about. I never had health issues or was on medication. I wondered if I stopped the pill, maybe it would help my tinnitus. The thing is, this is no double-blind study. As with my supplements, I feel my tinnitus could have got better or worse even on its own. I have not had it long enough or tested each parameter individually to determine their efficiency. I stopped the pill for a week and I am the same as before...

      I wonder if there is any point in stopping the pill altogether and what your experience is.
