BeckieSays got a reaction from Karen in Changes in Menstrual Cycle
I'm on day 9 & I have had some profound things go on - one is that my period is 4 days early (not on birth control.) Also had zero PMS symptoms. Like normally I'm inhaling chocolate/sugar/gluten & moody. Now I'm just having a slightly crampy period. Nifty.

Nope, not unrealistic at all! Your period is triggered by a drop in hormones (progesterone). If your hormones drop enough for any reason, bam, your period starts. Diet CAN cause a drop in hormones that fast.
Based on what you said about potential implantation bleeding, I'll assume you're not on birth control and had already ovulated this month. Had you started the whole 30 earlier in your cycle, your period likely wouldn't have appeared so soon.
The first time I changed my diet (not paleo at the time - insulin resistance diet), my period started 3 days later and I didn't have a fraction of the normal pain due to endometriosis. It happened that fast. Not the same as what you experienced, but it was a testament to a jump start of the hormone changes!

Has anyone else experienced changes with menstrual cycle? I have endometriosis and this causes me a fair amount of pain and discomfort (hysterectomy may happen). Yesterday I started my cycle without warning and due to the medical interventions I have in place for endometriosis I'm not due for at least another two months or more. As yet no positive effects in reduction of pain etc, but I'm not bloated which is nice. Has anyone else had changes?
