Your body is getting better and adjusting itself.. (unless theres something non diet related )  hang in there and you'll be back to a normal every month period soon..   Once every three months doesn't sound right.

Dumb question, but what's the difference between breakthrough bleeding and just an irregular period? Because for the first time in my life, I had what I assumed was a second period in a month. This is my third W30, and my cycle has been a little out of whack for a few years. But it's always been regular or absent, never really early. And it seemed like a normal period, i.e. Length, flow, etc.

Mrs. Stick,, yeah, bc was a long time ago for me but I'm aware of the new modern ways of postponing ones period several months  (still doesn't sound right to me) I didn't realize that was the kind of pill the poster was taking..

I think it's wrong too, personally. Another example of pharmaceutical companies and marketers telling women that their natural "way" is something to be fixed or eliminated and here, buy and take this pill. It's scientists messing with nature and to what ultimate end, there's no way to know yet. I totally get not wanting to have a period every 3 weeks (I say as I sit here with cramps and nausea) but a woman's body is meant to bleed on a regular basis. Just my personal take.

Are you in perimenopause?  That can start at age 28 or 38 and last for 10 years.  Then there's the meno and after that postmenopause which can last for another 10 years.   All in all, the process can last 40 years......Grandmaw was in peri at 38....night sweats/day sweats did not stop until 78.  She went through boxes of tissues.  She placed them under her clothes...everywhere - underarms, chest, neckline, back, legs. :D  40 years of  meno stages.  She was always hanging her head out of some window, even in the car.    :P   You could be anywhere along that timeline...even while taking BC.    

 

Grandmaw is still hot.  The doctors tell her she looks amazing.   So night sweats/day sweats...albeit part of the normal process preserved her skin and youthful attitude.

The idea of postponing periods came from the fact that historically women did not have so many periods as we do now because without effective contraception families were bigger and we spent much more time pregnant and not menstruating. Research is being done on the effect of prolonged exposure to oestrogen on females since this is not how our bodies were designed, we are designed to be pregnant often. Having said all of that I also believe that taking artificial hormones is necessarily any better for us.

Interesting!

 

I think you meant "I also don't believe that taking artificial hormones is necessarily any better for us."?  ;)

I read something about this not too long ago. It was talking about nuns going on birth control to lower their risk of breast cancer. It had to do with the fact that they don't have a break from the monthly hormone cycle that comes with pregnancy. It was interesting.

My period had been pretty iregular also. It's been iregular for awhile but W30 definitely postponed it. I use a diaphragm, no pills for me. I am curious... do any of you know if this seriously messes with ovulation and conception? Thinking about having another kid but I am wondering if it will take a long time to conceive. I had almost 8 weeks in between last two periods!

I will tell you baltomom that eating this way--primal/paleo/whole 30 WILL straighten out your hormones. My husband and I tried for 6 years with no success. We had 4 failed IUI's (last one in 2007) with the result being that our only hope was IVF, and my husband being told that he was very much lacking in 'that' department. We certainly couldn't afford IVF so we figured God had other plans for us. Time went on, and I discovered Traditional diets and Nourishing Traditions led to our discovering Primal in 2010. We followed it religiously and after 3 months I discovered I was pregnant! lo and behold! And now, we have a happy, crazy little 4 year old boy :-) 

 

Personally, I would keep on keeping on with Whole 30, Paleo and the like and I think you will have success having another kiddo--it worked for us.
