I know there have been a ton of period posts but I can't find the answer I am looking for so figured I would try again. I did my first Whole 30 during January and loved it so much that I am still mostly eating W30 except that I have added back some hard cheese on occasion and a glass of wine once per week. My period while on W30 was incredibly heavy but on time and lasted for my normal 3 days. My second period in Feb was also on time and normal (much lighter). Then, 8 days after I finished my period (on day 11 of my new cycle) I started bleeding again (not spotting, actual bleeding) and it has been 7 days now and it's doesn't seem to be stopping. It's not overwhelmingly heavy, just normal period flow with light cramps. I have heard other people say this happened to them and they have on-going bleeding... but what I want to know is how long it typically lasts? Are we talking weeks? And does this typically happen just one time and then my cycles will become regular, or this will be an on-going issue if I try to stay on a modified W30 permanently? I have been to my OB recently so I highly doubt something new could be wrong with me, but I guess you never know.
Hiiii! This is my first round of whole30 and tbh it is treating me great! I am so happy with the choice to clean up my diet however my emotions are crazy!!!! I feel on top of the world at some points and then just like a blubbering mess at others. I have been sober for 2 years and this legitmily is as unpredictable as that. I am on day 14!!!! and I’m not even so concerned about “getting my tiger blood” as I am with my emotions. For the past two days I have felt insecure and overwhelmed about everything! But before that I felt I had a handle on it and I was feeling more confident! I wasn’t feeling satisfied throughout the day so added in some additional fats and I am feeling better, I think? It’s hard to say I’m feeling better when I cry randomly I had one period when I first started ironically but I am on BC as it was that time, so idk. I am just looking for support and understanding I guess? My husband is doing this i with me as well, but not as strictly compliant as me. Ie. he is drinking soda and having cheese every once in awhile. He is also not an emotional person and has PTSD from a previous deployment (I AM) so talking to him about these things is hard. So anyways, thanks for listening to my whining and is anyone else going through this?!
