So I've been on the South Beach Diet now for almost 2 months. I've lost 22 lbs. I'm quite proud of myself. I actually weigh in tomorrow to find out what I've lost for this week.
Now I've been on the Depo Shot for 4 years now. I can't take the pill because it gives me migraines and makes me sick. I refuse to use anything that's inserted into my body because I've heard too many horror stories. The Depo shot has caused me to have little to no periods for the last 4 years. I'd spot every so often but I didn't have any of the PMS or heavy bleeding.
Shortly after going to Phase 2 of the diet I spotted for 3 weeks solid. I had 1 week off and now I'm having a full blown period and my hormones have been going crazy. I have had mood swings and cramping.
I read somewhere that fat cells contain estrogen and when you diet your cycle tends to change. I'm just done being miserable... Will this craziness end if I get off my birth control? I'm worried that i'm going to spot again for 3 weeks. I can't bleed for 3 weeks out of every month until I've reached my goal.
