    I was flicking through my diary trying to sort out holidays etc, when I suddenly realised I haven't had a period for 11, nearly 12 weeks. Now, I am never regular, and anything between 6-9 weeks is 'normal' for me. The other week I fely PMSy, but nothing appeared. Now, I know that being very under weight can make them stop, but I am a looooong way from that. Can it happen temporarily just from losing a bit of weight?

    Not that I'm looking forward to it finally arriving:p

    Nice to meet a true living legend, Mary :D

    On a more serious note, this could just be the packs affecting your hormones....there was a thread recently about some CDers having worse or more frequent periods :confused:

    Hormone levels flucuate when there are changes in weight. Some women experience increased activity and spotting,,,othere may find that theit periods stop for a while. Once target is reached and weight loss ceases the metabolic rate will adjust to a new level appropu=riate to the new weight and the hormones will settle down and find there own pattern..

    Dosn't happen to everyone...but it can happen.

    hiya when I lost 4.5 stone with slimming world 4 yrs ago in just over 5 months my periods stopped for 8 months, even tho I wasn't underweight, my GP checked my hormone levels during thsi time and they were fine, she advised me to gain a few pounds( wish I had that problem now!!!) and they would restart which I did and they did!!, now I'm not advocating that you stop losing weight but drastic weight loss can stop your periods for a while, they will come back when things settle down but you can always get your hormones checked to put your mind at rest
