Reintroduction during period

Hi everyone,

It looks like my reintroduction is going to coincide with my period, or at least with pms... Yikes.

Would you advice against doing the reintroduction during my period? If I feel terrible, I may not be able to tell whether it's from pms or from the reintroduced food. Then again, I'm not sure I can keep going with W30 for much longer than 30 days, either, as it isn't really making me feel great.

I did part of my reintroductions (still ongoing) during my period and it worked out for me. I happened to reintro some dairy before my period - not intentionally, but it worked out as I believe dairy makes everything worse during my period. 

I am definitely not an expert by any means, but I would start reintroductions. Some of my reactions to foods were not at all like PMS/period symptoms so I was able to distinguish a bad chickpea reaction from woman issues. (As a side note, my post-w30 period was lighter and significantly less painful than usual which also helped for sussing out what’s what.)
