    Hey - I had my last TOTM on week 2 of this diet. I am now half through Week 8, and still no TOTM. I'm usually only 2 days late at most. I haven't had any physical contact aside from hugging with someone since January so there's no way that is the issue.

    Does this diet affect TOTM?

    Yes it does. It affects different women in different ways it seems. I have only been on this 9 weeks and am having my 3rd cycle already. It seems as if it is very heavy this time too. I think I read that it has something to do with the hormones in the shrinking fat cells.

    Yes, mine has changed from 27/28 days to about 23/24 days. Not much of a difference, I know, but an extra one a year! lol

    Hiya,
    I definitley think it does. I dont have actual monthlys (got a mirena coil) but this last 2 months I have suffered really bad PMT! I can't stop myself :-( Even had to apologise to hubby earlier lol

    Think of it that its not for long.... we hope anyway

    Hi

    Am on week 8, was 3 weeks 4 days late for TOTM, usually very early. Plus had quite a lot of pain on and off waiting to start. What a relief when it finally happened. Hope it's just a one-off while my body adjusts.

    Weight can affect it anyway, so once you start doing something about it, it's bound to affect it. Some will be more frequent, some less, but hopefully when we've got to target it will settle and be more consistent. Mine vary from about 31 days to 45! So hoping they will be more frequent when I have less weight to lose!

    I was hoping to wear my new white pants today, but as I'm late, that is tempting fate. Booo, now I cna't wear them until I get and finish TOTM. :-\

    I had 3 in 5 weeks. It's costing me quite a bit.

    Hmm - earing the white trousers.

    Should I be nervous, though? From the sounds, you're all getting it -early- not late....

    I lost weight this week but was worried as my tummy was so swollen and rock hard.
    It usually only does this the day before my period, and I'm not due till the weekend.
    But, this morning I had real period pains in my back, so i think it'll be early for me, and I'm usually regular as clockwork every 28 days.

    I hadn't had one for 7 weeks, it's usually every 4 and a half, and this time it's a killer!

    I'm a mooncup girl, which I thoroughly reccomend - saves a fortune, kind to your body, kind to the enviroment, and comes in a cute little pouch!

    I brought a mooncup and have just started using it. I am definitely a convert. It is suprisingly comfortable and you can use it through the night - wish i'd found it years ago

    You really won't regret it - it is wonderful and has a money back garantee if you don't get onwith it.

    I wouldn't be without mine.

    This is a little deviation from the topic but - does anyone know if using Ketostix during your TOTM affects the reading in any way? I'm on the brink of getting back into ketosis after my holiday and have just come on grrr, so not sure if I should bother using my last stick to check....
