    i have been on CD for 4 weeks now and have been on my P for 3 of this...:mad:
    i have had this problem before on Atkins diet so i am guessing it is ketosis related!?!?:confused:
    anyone with more info?

    Hi

    I am no expert on this but losing weight does affect your monthly cycle. Did you have irregular periods before? I would say go see your Doc as that amount of bleeding could possibly make you go anaemic. Personally I am on the pill so my periods are regular as clockwork on CD - not sure how they would be if I wasn't on it though.

    i too am on pill and am usually incredibly clockwork...

    i had'nt thought about going anemic... oops!

    been bleeding for weeks now :sigh:

    not really super heavy but bad enough. normally i am soooo light too.

    had my p on week 1 (normal one) then got it again in week 2 and have had it ever since :cry:

    i shall mention to my cdc on tuesday and maybe invest in a good iron tablet

    must be ketosis-related as i am normally so regular.

    You've lost close to 2 stone in 3 weeks. That is bound to have an effect. It might not even be the ketosis - just the dramatic changes in your body chemistry from such rapid weight loss.

    I would definitely say have a word with your CDC or doctor as you need a bit of advice that it is not a problem. Sure you willl be fine but better to check.

    And grats on losing all that weight.

    Has this happened to anybody? (And I'm not pregnant)
