    hi ladies, ive been on lipotrim for 4 weeks now, lost 25lbs so far but now my period is a week late. im wondering if im pregnant or the diet has messed up my periods.

    problem is cant do a test till im 7 weeks as my body is weird and doesnt show up till im this pregnant. its so annoying.

    so dont know what to do now. carry on with the diet and wait and see or stop dieting in case?

    had anyone found out theyre pregnant while on this kind of diet? if so how far?

    thx

    Hi, only thing I can suggest is seeing your GP for a blood test. The diet can lead to late periods - all VLCD's can ,but a few of us are here having babies because of our VLCD's too! So yes it can happen.

    All the best,

    I found out I was pregnant when I was 4 weeks gone and I just came off the diet. As purple said, get a blood test done because it'll be able to definitely detect if you're pregnant or not. Ask the pharmacist in the meantime what the best course of action is for you as I didn't when I found out I was expecting, I just went back to eating. You may be able to do a refeed plan until you know, you'd still lose weight but slower!

    Morning hun, when i was on Lipotrim i completely missed a couple of my periods, even one when i came off it... then 6 weeks later i was pregnant...

    So the diet does mess round with your body lots, but just take it easy just incase!

    Best of luck, hope you get what u want xx

    A blood test would show immediately whether you're pg as it wouldn't be relying on you being more than 10 or 50 units Beta-HCG in your urine, as long as you have over 5 it will be picked up! VLCDs do mess your periods around so it could well be related to that, is there a chance you could be pg though?
