Default SBD affecting your body

Okay Ladies... When it comes to TOM I've been like clockwork all my life... I could set my watch by it. I started following SBD 2 months ago - and love it! However this month and last month TOM has arrived almost 2 weeks late!!!

I am wondering if this is normal - has anyone else noticed that SBD affected their body this way.

Thanks for your input!

(P.S. DH Vasectomy)

I don't know about other women, but when my weight fluctuates by more than 4-5 pounds, it throws off my cycle for that month (usually makes it at least 5 days late) - as does exercising. I don't know why that is, but it has been true my whole life.

FAT holds estrogen so yes losing weight screws with your cycle. it's normal.

thank you Nessa,that makes more sense, I've always wondered, so it's not the diet actually its our bodies getting rid of fat, so that is a good sign right?

3 weeks though is unusually long. Go visit your gyno.

no its normal when I'm dieting, atkins really threw it off but sbd is doing the same I guess.. it seems to be tapering off now but it's still there. I guess I have to choose weight loss or TOM or I guess in this case if I choose weight loss then I get TOM, it's a package deal, lol

At what point should I wonder/worry? Or should I just relax and figure it will come eventually?

At this point, how long have you been "off"? If you've missed over 2 cycles then you might want to head to the DR. but I'd wait until then. Since getting pregnant is not a concern, just relax.

My gyn says I'm extra lucky - my cycles are running about 23 days since the weight loss. Oh joy.

It's always good to check with your gyno just in case, but you definitely are going to experience changes as your fat levels fluctuate. As Nessa explained, fat stores estrogen, so those of us who are overweight tend to have more, shall we say, unique TOMs.

Congrats, though...it probably indicates loss of fat, which is a GREAT thing!

I lost about 35# quite quickly years ago. I also stopped taking the pill about the same time. I did not have periods for about 11 months. My doctor was concerned enough that he drew a prolactin level (checking for pituitary tumor) and put me on Provera (supposed to shed the lining). It didn't work. Everything eventually got back on track. It just took it's time.
