    Apologies again to the guys...

    Have any of you found your monthly cycle has changed?? Heavier? Lighter? Longer duration?

    Is a change in the cycle normal? I'm worried again!!!!!!!! xx

    thanks xx

    its well longer!! due to the pill I take I barely get a period to be honest, so this is soooo alien to me!!
    I've been on for about 8 days!! Compared to my usual 1 & a half days this is taking over my life!!! LOL

    Disruption to your monthly cycle is very common a vlcd, but once you finish your diet it will settle down again into your normal cycle.

    I think it has something to do with the quick release of oestrogen from the fat as you lose weight so quickly that puts it haywire and also can make you more fertile.

    thanks for that Mini - makes sense now... I'm quite lucky really, I haven't suffered with my periods in years now due to the pill I'm taking just seems to really work with me. But this week I have had such bad pmt, I'm not used to it!! Really snappy! And I've cried alot too :(

    I'm living proof you are definately more fertile...was trying to get pregnant since my son was born over 6 years ago.....and hey presto (see below)....other thing I noticed when on LT I didnt have any cramps at all which was great!

    Crikey, I'm 49 and still having regular periods, although my last one (first one since starting LT) was two weeks late, but the same as usual.

    I hope it doesn't increase my fertility though, as I've already got four daughters:girlpower:

    It only affects it in that you tend to retain more water at that time which makes you heavier so it doesn't show on the scales! At least that's what I'm assuming.

    Due to my weight I dont have regular TOTM - am lucky if only get one or two a year. However once I hit a certain weight it comes back more regularly - one side effect of losing weight that I am not looking forward to.

    not noticed a difference, perhaps with the weight i've lost i've had TOTM more regularly. but no difference in light/heavy so to speak.

    My periods have always been a pain in the ass, lasting up to 3-4 weeks even with the dreaded Mirena coil thingy which I hate and want removed as soon as possible. Having said that I was on my period when I started and it ended after a few days. I was shocked as I was expecting it to last as long as usual. So I'm hoping LT was reduce them.

    As for the being snappy, I found that on the first week of LT I was a bit of a monster. I was giving everyone a few home truths and I had the patience of a mad man. Maybe it was the carb/sugar/crap withdrawal or maybe it was PMT, not sure. I'm in my 3rd week now and you couldn't anger me, saying that my usual PMT symptoms should be starting soon so it will be interesting to see of they improve or worsen.
