Flashes of light in eyes, blind spot. Due to menstrual cycle or hormones?

I am 26 and female. Can your the hormones and changes during your period make you have flashes of light and a blind spot for a few minutes? I have no headache, no curtain type thing coming over my vision , no medical issues that I know of other than anxiety (i have floaters too, which is normal for me and has been checked). What can causes flashes of light/blind spot?
