    Yes defo. I've just finished week 5 and I've had 3 full on periods in this time. Search for periods in the cambridge section and loads of people report this. It's to do with the fat burning in ketosis that releases hormones.

    Thank you, I'll have a look! Does that mean I'm in ketosis already (how do you know)? This is first time doing any diet and everything all new to me. I'm feeling determined even all I can think off is wine ?ha x

    Not to sure on the ketosis front. I'd say after day 3 you should be going into it. I felt really bad days 3-5 which was me going into it. Good luck with your diet, it's mind over matter. So worth it though, even the extra periods is worth it lol. Did you get any of the ketosis stick things to pee on?

    My consultant gave me some. Ask if they have any. Yes I know what you mean about the thought of not eating but I'm on day 36, it's flown by. I want to lose 3 - 3 & half too. Enjoy your early night. X

    Mines with the implant too. My CDC seemed quite worried though as 3 heavy in 5 weeks but I said I'll leave it a bit longer and see what happens.

    If you are concerned then go to your doctor and mention it, and they will probably offer you a blood test just to check your iron levels x
