Does anyone else have problems with their periods since doing atkins? Since about the 3rd day into this diet I have been bleeding(gross sorry) I only had a period the week before this and I am 2 weeks into my pack of pills now so I shouldn't really be bleeding, the only time this normally happens is if I miss a pill or something but I haven't missed a single one. I have carried on as normal with my pills hoping it would just pass but my periods getting worse and heavier, this has been going on for 2 weeks now and I'm starting to worry abit!
My periods make me feel terrible at the best of times, never mind when they last this long lol!!
Does anybody else have any similar probs and do you think its likely to be linked to atkins?
Sorry about the nature of this post!!! and for any men reading I doubley apologise hahaha:)

Thanks woof that feels better already :D

I may go see my doc if it doesn't stop because this never normally happens, I'm worried he will tell me to stop doing this though if it is linked! :(

OOh no just on the normal contraceptive pill.

Sorry kezzy, I can't help either hun. I think Woof is right in saying that a trip to the docs is necessary especially as it is getting worse. Cheryl may be able to help but I know she is on nights so I don't know if she'll pop on before she goes to bed. Sorry hun, hope you feel better soon xx :hug99:

Agreed with the other ladies. When i was on Atkins last year my cycles were more regular and less painful, if anything Atkins made them better!

I doubt your issue is anything to do with the diet:(

Thanks ladies I am gonna give it til the end of my pill packet and see how I am then and if it carries on into my next packet I'm gonna go see him, because that deffinitely won't be normal! I read somewhere that estrogen is stored in fat and as you lose fat it releases it and can cause changes in your hormones. Don't know how rtue this is but if it is then at least its not just about atkins and maybe just general weight loss :rolleyes:

I agree with the advice above, it's probably hormonal and nothing serious but it's best to check with the doc.

Hope you feel better soon, Kerry.
