    I have the mirena coil and have barely had any periods since BUT since starting CD 3.5 weeks ago I have had one heavy period and am just starting another :cry:

    Is this common? Reaction of my body to new food regime?

    Certainly don't like it!

    The first 2 and half months of being on CD my periods were all over the place! Had one, then 2 weeks later had another VERY heavy one, then didnt have any for a while, then was having random days when i was on, then the next day i wasnt on. It was all very random! but they all seem back to normal now and have settled down.

    After nearly 5 months on this diet I thought mine had settled down to a regular 26 days. Although more frequent, heavier and painful than before CD. Not any more. Mine was meant to come on Saturday-I usually have spotting, etc a few days before-but this time-nothing. I had a stomach ache on Thursday, but I've had none of the other signs that show it's on it's way. So now I don't really know when to expect it. Oh well :rolleyes:

    Exactly the same - I haven't had a period for years because of implant, and then today I came on. It was an unpleasent surprise and now I feel ROUGH! I'd forgotten how horrid periods are!

    Hey
    I too would say its quite normal for things to be a bit up in the air..
    I had one the first 2 months and then did not have one for 3 months..and then it arrived and not sure what will happen next !!!!!

    I'm with you there, have mirena too, no totm for 6+mths, then within 4 days of starting ss it paid me a visit and lasted for nearly 2 wks. Hormone imbalance due to rapid weight loss, apparently will settle down sometimes once body gets used to it. Hey, its a small price to pay! xx

    I have the implant (implanon) and I have only had 4weeks without a period. for the rest of my 15weeks CD journey I have had a period. So I don't know what the hell is going on but I wish it would sort itself out soon.
