Question Weird Periods?

Does anyone on this site that does Low Carb diets ever experience irregular periods? I normally get irregular periods when I do extreme diets.

actually mine have become more regular. also, my migraines have disappeared, except for the one that heralds TOM. that in itself is enough to keep me on track.

Mine were/are weird as well. Mostly heavier than usual (ugh)...and I think 2nd month no period at all.....and 3rd month spotting about a week before I was supposed to get my period (and I am on the pill!!!).

The only good news while I tend not to lose anything about two weeks prior to my period (post "ovluation" if you can say that while on the pilll), I do lose a couple of lbs once TOM is over. Something to look forward to.

I have my annual checkup scheduled for this week and will mention to my dr. altho I understand that losing fat affects the estrogen stored in the fat cells which causes all the problems.

Have you had your thyroid checked? Mine get strange when my level gets low. Haven't noticed any change with the diet though.

The only weird thing is that when I started losing weight, I started having a regular period again.
