sholmes Posted February 1, 2016 Share Posted February 1, 2016 Hi there, Through my searches, I've seen that cycle changes - even on birth control pills - is normal on the whole 30 but my question is, does it ever get back to normal? And how long does it take? To give a little context, I just finished my 3rd whole 30 yesterday. During my whole 30, I experienced mid-cycle spotting (around when I would be ovulating, if I wasn't on the pill). I started cramping and spotting on Friday (so it's been 3 days now) and I'm not scheduled to get my period until Tuesday, I've had on and off mid-cycle spotting for years now (even tried going off the pill and it still happened) but my period usually comes like clock-work being on the pill. I'm wondering if my period will end up regulating if I continue to eat whole 30-ish going forward and approximately how many cycles it will take. Obviously one of the few unfortunate side effects of regulating your hormones. I would love to hear others' experiences - especially those on the pill that have gone through this and (hopefully) come out the other side. Link to comment
