  1. BC holds hormones steady and doesn't allow for the hormonal fluctuations that prompt ovulation. When you stop taking the pills, the drop in hormones triggers menstruation like it does for those not on bc. However, when you adjust your eating, your body's own hormones can fluctuate, and anything considered a drop will cause bleeding.

    Ah, ok, I get it now. Thanks!

  2. I think it is interesting how women on BC tend to have their periods early and those who are not are having them late.  I understand being late; the dietary change could be perceived as stress and delay ovulation.  I don't really get why things would come early if you are on BC, but I'm not on BC.


    My husband and I are TTC and so I've been charting.  This month has certainly been a little different.  My low temps were not as low and today I had the highest temp I've had since I have tracked my temps.  I also didn't have any breast tenderness this month, which is actually what caused me to start poking around and find that lump/cyst/whatever it is.  


    I'm glad I read this thread though, because I am due to start my next cycle any day now and from the sound of things I'll probably be late.  Now I know I shouldn't get too excited about it.
