I've been lurking for a while now and made an account because I can't seem to find a thread about my particular situation.
I am overweight and have taken up running and dieting, and since then my period has become more frequent, heavier, and lasts longer. I have found little bits and pieces of information about this on the web but cannot find any solid information about it. Usually it is covering how women lose their period when they are underweight (this has happened to me in the past, but now I am going from very overweight to average).
Is it normal to be losing weight from being overweight and having heavier periods. And if so, can someone tell me the science behind it? I read a little about how it makes your fat calls reduce and produce less estrogen.
If this is in the wrong area, I apologize.
Edit: I would like to add that my PMS has been extremely strong, emotionally. I exploded on my SO and it was so bad that he just laughed because I was simply so unreasonable. It was like watching from behind my eyes this angry person go nuts, while inside i was like "stop, stop being insane".
