Ask you're doc, but from what I've been told anything can bring it on, including hormonal changes. Also you're blood flow is changing, your metabolism is different, there is a lot happening and some people (like me) have a very responsive vagus nerve.

When you feel it coming on immediately sit or lie down, elevate your feet higher than your head to increase blood flow to your brain, and relax. Closing my eyes and relaxing usually stops it before I full on faint.
