Little bit worried and will tell my pharmacist tomorrow but...
I'm on the pill so my periods are regular and on time etc.
However I was on 2 weeks ago - started taking my pills again on Thursday last week and I'm still on as usual :( not stopped even though I'm taking my pill & have done for nearly a week...is this ok or should I be worried. Feel like iv been on constantly since I started lipotrim. Not complaining about lipotrim just wondering why my pill isn't working?xx

Problems with periods seem to be a problem on this diet, I'm not sure why, but loads of people seem to post about problems. I know fat holds oestrogen so maybe as you lose fat you secrete oestrogen maybe that has something to do with it but I'm only guessing.

Hi Frecklesy,
I know where you are coming from, I am on the mini pill as I only stopped breast feeding 2 weeks before starting LT and have a great deal of issues with periods. My baby was 4 months old and I had only had 1 bleed before LT but now am week on/week off and it is driving me mad. Am now on my 3rd period since 8th November. No fair :-(
My chemist said 'oh yes, it's quite common to be messed up in that department' Wow, thanks.
If you find a solution/reason, please let me know as close to quitting so don't have to do this for the next 4 months.

Its quite common for LT to mess with your cycle.... your pill should still be working but your doing the right thing checking with your pharmacist!!! x

Yeah I agree with dee, LT does mess with your cycle, even though it's worked wonders for mine. Mine were very irregular but since losing the weight there every 4 weeks so v happy. But I would go to the docs and see what they say.

Boohoo! My pharmacist has said that I need to refeed (so I've started with a chicken salad this evening) my refeed is to eat one meal a day until I next see him&it is to be only protein with spinach or iron filled veg as I'm lacking in iron&he says I look very poorly :( but a lot thinner!!!
So begrudingly I have taken his advice & I will have one meal a day.
I just hope iv done tfr long enough to get me out of bad habits, I was intending to go on just 2weeks longer. I don't think he wil let me go back on TFR now as I'm under 25 bmi.I still want to lose about a stone so hopefully I can do it by refeeding very slowly!
Wish I hadn't told him now!xx
