Gail Lovingdale posted a topic in Ladies OnlyMy period just arrived two weeks early even though I'm taking hormonal birth control. My period has been very regular for five years...I'm talking arriving exactly the same day and time like clockwork. Naturally this change is freaking me out. I'm on day 23 of the program and wondering if this is a common side effect? Could my diet really have such a huge effect on my menstrual cycle even while taking birth control? Any info or common experiences would help
Hello, This isn't so much of a question, more of just an observation. I have been using birth control (intra-vaginal ring, not a pill) for about 6 months, and it's taken a while to get regular periods on this type of BC (not really sure why - maybe because it's more localized than the pill?). Anyway, I started Whole30 on Jan. 3rd and have basically been on my period ever since, and I am not "supposed" to start until next week. I've read lots of posts about hormonal weirdness during Whole30, but I can't seem to get the better of my tiredness, and I think it might be tied to the same hormonal weirdness that's causing my period issues. Does anyone else feel this way? How do you combat the tiredness? As a side note, I know that I'm not anywhere close to anemic, but it's sort of how I'm feeling right now. Any tips or suggestions? Thanks in advance! Rachel H.
I'm on R1 D9. I take hormonal birth control to skip my period & I'm mid cycle on the pill right now. On Sunday (it's wed night now) I started my period and it's still going strong. I start school next week and am really hoping this stops before I start school. Does anyone know how long it takes fir your body to get used to the diet? Worst case scenario, if i eat dairy will my period stop?
