    I was wondering how your CD/VLCD had affected you.
    I normally have medium flow periods (sorry for being graphic:rolleyes:) but today I have started my TOTM and the flow is heavy...and a few days early.
    Does anybdy else have different periods from usual when doing this?

    Thanks in advance Gaynor x

    Hiya,

    I'm just starting my 3rd week on SS and just finishing a week of TOTM....I'm on the pill and not actually due until 3/5/08:eek: so I'm guessing that I will still have TOTM next week too.:mad:

    So yes my periods have been affected by the diet, I was early by 10 days (being graphic - heavier than normal to start but soon petered out to not much):eek:. It was exactly the same the first time I tried the diet too - within a week it was TOTM whether or not it was due.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Hi, exactly the same thing happened to me.

    Im only on day 9 today but wasnt expecting TOTM until end of this week and it started on Saturday and was heavier than usual but now not a lot. How strange.

    When I did lighterlife last year, the same thing happened again.
    Oh well, if I lose the weight I don't mind.

    :)

    now you've got me worried!!

    ... cos my last 3 periods have been of the flooding variety - very difficult to cope with at work, or, as last month, in the middle of a playground with 3 10yo girls wanting me to run round after them....

    Am quite anxious that some of you are reporting heavier than normal periods - mine can't possible be any heavier, surely!! And it does explain why I've started spotting today, a whole 10 days before I expected it to...

    Well, I guess I'm not alone, and at this early stage - week 3 - so far its worth it...!!!

    The bonus side is...periods do generally get lighter as you lose weight and eat less rubbish...so I have read anyways.

    Hmmmm.... thought provoking! I have always been like clockwork, altho getting heavier of late. I put that down to being 44, and maybe peri menopause. (No Mum to ask now, but older female colleagues have said it is a possibility.) However, I am now late. This NEVER happens. I am terrified I could be pregnant, altho we dont "do" thingy very often!! I am in my third week of CD. Any thoughts? OR am I off to the chemist for a test? (Heaven help me...)
