    This might be interesting to anyone having period probs.

    I think I have found the answer to my tenderness. It might be useful to thers who are having period problems too - I have read a few!
    I am presuming that although I don't have periods anymore I am just having the tenderness. Weird though - I haven't had any hot sweats since starting CD. I hope they don't start again when I am at goal!!!

    'I spoke with my doctor about this and the answer he gave me I have never seen in a blog or book before. His explanation was as follows: your body fat retains estrogen and when you lose body fat quickly, then your body doesn't know what to do with the explosion of extra estrogen so it makes your cycle unexpectedly start prematurely. Then the estrogen level stays elevated because of your weight is dropping so your cycle never stops.

    I don't think that we should take everything on board that the site says because we are all so different. It's just an interesting insight of what may cause some of the effects we experience.

    I found it helpful explaining my tenderness and I also feel that the reason my hot sweats have stopped may be because of the hormone levels too. I just hope I'm wrong on that one though!!

    Fat cells retaining oestrogen is why it's generally harder for larger women to conceive. I have bi-annual periods and quite looking forward to a healthier cycle!
