Supply issues around AF

I've noticed with my last 3 babies that when I'm around 5-7 days from starting AF, baby gets antsy while nursing. Fusses a little, latch, unlatch, latch, unlatch. Plus my supply seems to go down some but only during that time. Everything goes back to normal the 2nd or 3rd day of AF. I have read that the hormone levels around that time changes the taste of the milk. So it's either that or that baby has to work a little harder to get the milk out, since supply is lower. Anyone else notice this? Or do I just have irate hormones, lol)

And question #2--- any ideas on how to get around this? (I took fenugreek, fennel, drank plenty during those days and nothing helped., btw)
