I hate the week leading into star week as I feel so bloated too. I can totally sympathise.

I find during that week that by avoiding bread and drinking more water I do feel less uncomfortable, may be worth a try.

Hope you feel more yourself soon

Miss Galaxy I would put Pjs on but an working till 3.30 :(

I have had loads of investigations but they can't find anything. I get terrible stomach craps for about a week before (like a phantom period) & then I get the period so basically I get only get 2 weeks a month off.

I went to the doc & he said " well we are seeing a lot of problems in women your age (i'm nearly 34) that have chosen to delay to childbirth" :mad:

Thats shocking! Your GP should not say that to you Hun!!
I would ask for a referral to see if there is anything that can be done for you.

Ahhh so I'm not the only one that gets the invisible period?!

Feel for you very much hun, don't know if you're on now or on next week - people use 'star week' to mean two different things... To reduce bloatiness, I'd say cut out bread :) It helps! Also, don't look in the mirror, lol, because your eyes will be exaggerating the truth.

Take care

Where did "Star Week" come from anyway? Is it like "Im on my *******" ?

Is it to mask something? Surely "I am due on" or "I am on" would give the same idea without having to say the word period if people find that embarrassing?

I believe star week orginated from when they wrote in your book yuor weight and if you were on your period that week they would but a little star next to it to indicate thew rag week :)

I have been refered & had a ultersound & it was clear. Need to go back to the docs but don't want to be told I am old again. Last time I was there he gave me really strong pain killers but I just spend the time I take them in a sleepy state

Yay I'm not alone. It should be star fornight for me!! I try to avoid bread anyway & am sort of doing sin free comfort food like mash pots & rice pud. It's WI in today. I lost 5lb & got slimmer of the month last week but not expecting great things this week :(

Potatoes and rice are quite starchy, wouldn't that bloat you too? Happens with me if I eat too much, also my dad finds they bloat him and make him burp like crazy. Good luck for WI though! Let us know how you get on so I have hope for Thursday! xxx
