    I dont use any contraception but mine were days early for weeks, though this time it was actually spot on the 28 days which is normal for me.
    It sure does affect your cycle. You may also get less/more pain, be heavier/lighter than normal.

    Hey,

    Mine came early on the first month, but have been on time ever since.

    They have become super heavy and short now, as opposed to light and lengthy!

    The changes are normal - dont worry!

    Definitely sympathise .....

    I am on week 9 and have had 5 periods ( and I mean proper whole week, cramps, full on periods ) in that time. I am also on the pill and my cycle has completely gone to pot. I actually was quite poorly and saw the doctor and am now on iron BUT that is extreme and think I am just unlucky, don't think I am normal !!!!! :sigh:

    Thanx 4 the responses - I feel a bit better about the "cycle" situation now but still wish it hadn't arrived when I was just starting to feel really good about myself.

    PMT is shocking and don't know if it in my head but I'm starving!!!!!!!!!:mad: :confused: :jelous:

    "Hormone levels fluctuate when there are changes in weight-particularly in women. For most, the menstrual cycle is not affected, but some women experience increased activity and break-through bleeding may occur. Others may find that their periods stop for a while.

    Once target weight is reached and weight loss ceases, the metabolic rate will adjust to a new level appropriate to the new weight, and the hormones will settle down and find their own pattern again."

    Hope that helps.
