    Hi girls,

    Need some advice, i have very regular periods but the last couple of days have been 'spotting' i finished my TOTM a week ago and this is unheard of for me, been SS for 7 weeks with an AAM week on week 4. Otherwise i have been feeling great!!!
    Anyone else had period problems on VLCD??

    Any advice gratefully recieved,

    Sarah x

    People regularly experience breakthrough bleeding on CD - if it gets heavy or goes on for a long time - more than say a week, then go and see your GP just to check all is ok.
    It is normal - I have ladies who have the coil who have not had periods in 3 years and they have a breakthrough.
    It does settle down :)

    Yeah I am having issues with TOTM on CD too. Mine last ages then come back 2 weeks after they finish. So I am 2 weeks on 2 weeks off.

    Just found this on a web site....

    Does the ‘Sole Source’ programme affect the menstrual cycle?

    Hormone levels fluctuate when there are changes in weight – particularly in women. For most, the menstrual cycle is not affected, but some women experience increased activity and breakthrough bleeding may occur. Others may find that their periods stop for a while. Once target 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.

    Not sure how I feel about the above, but at least it won't be permanent..

    Although I had 2 in August:confused::rolleyes:, 15 weeks down the line they definitely have settled down. Much better than when I was heavier.

    That's good francesmag, but not so good for you soontobelittlegem :(

    I've never had any period problems even at my heaviest so it all feels a bit alien to me, feel better chatting about it tho.

    Thanks girls xxxx

    I had 4 proper ones in 5.5 weeks then settled down in regularity but heavier and far worse than normal.
