    Hello...I was wondering if the vlcd affects the monthly menstrual cycle? I thought I was going to have it the 2nd week into my diet -- but no show (and I had the symptoms and aches!)
    What happened?:confused:

    Hi nina,

    Hormone levels fluctuate when you your weight changes and while for most women it does not affect their monthly cycle a good few do experience increased activity or may even stop. But once weight is reached and weight loss ceases, the metabolic rate will adjust to a new level appropriate to the new weight, and the hormones will settle down and find their own pattern again.

    Love Mini xxx

    It has affected me, I started TOTM on day 3 and have only had 2 days off since!! my GP says not to worry, it's just my body coping with the changes.

    I am usually on the day due, every 28 days regular as clock work, since being on diet I have been days earlier than normal and its a lot lighter than it used to be (no complaints with that) and lasts 4 days where as it used to be 5......strange how its so different for everyone.

    With rapid weight loss estrogen is released into the blood stream and this has a lot to do with upsetting the monthly cycle and also it is said to increase your fertility.:rolleyes:

    We have had two Miniminers who have got pregnant this year so far:)

    Mine seems to be delayed by a few weeks and is about the same length etc as usual.One thing I do notice is that my PMT is much less.

    Well I am on week four of SS and should have started period week one ~ not complaining but I too have always been as regular as clockwork every 28 days

    My daughter says I am on the change as I am 50 this year but I am blaming the diet ( cant possibly getting old he he )

    Isnt it strange how everyone of us are different ~ watch out all you dieters don't get pregnant

    Wouldnt my 28 year old daughter be shocked if that happened to me oh er

    it has affected mine.

    I had the depo jab in December, and my Jan period didn't show up at all. Then I started CD, and Feb's period was as usual. Started 2 days late, so I thought I was going to miss another one!
