    Painful Menstrual Cramps, and NO PERIOD!!

    The first week i started my diet and training, i got my period early and i'm on the pill.
    OK, i thought, no biggy. I'll continue to take the pill and when my body gets used to what i'm doing to it, it will adapt, and my period will regulate.
    Well, i got my period early again last month, while still on the pill. So i stopped the pill the day i got it, and started a new month (pill box) when my period was over. This is so i can be regular.
    Now, i'm in my first week of my new 'pill box' and while training yesterday i got severe menstrual cramps. So bad, it was worse than the pain my trainer was putting me through. I had to stop training.
    Does anyone know what is going on? I've never had a problem with the pills i'm taking or my period. I'm thinking about NOT taking the pill anymore. It's too much bullsh**.
    by the way, i've researched the brand i'm taking and it's one recommended to woman who train hard.

    It might just be that you're ovulating.
    I don't take the pill but, I often get cramps about two weeks before my period.

    I have not taken the pill or ever had bad pains except when my wife is having her period.
    I would seriously talk to a Dr. It could be from the diet and new workout but it could also be something wrong. Seriously that women stuff is nothing to mess with. I mean if you don't want to have kids do the pull out method like the girl from the other post. lol What pill are you taking I have done allot of research on yaz it seems to be the newest and most prescribed these days.
    Again I am not a Dr but I did stay in a holiday in express last night.

  • Keto Period Spotting

    As a female, we have to tinker the keto diet a little more than our male keto-ers do. For example, during shark week I can’t eat meat or I’ll end up on the couch in agony, with a heating pad, wanting to tear my ovaries out. So, I have to opt for things that are more easily digestible to my puffy, unhappy insides. Keto for women is just different. For one week every month we have brain-consuming cravings, we weigh more, have a hard time digest ...

For me, like for many people in our communities, this all started with a health concern. I was born with a heart condition. It never impacted my life, but it was the ...

For some women, the weight gain is clearly linked to an upcoming period. But some women put weight on in the middle of their cycle. What’s u ...

Clinical onset with classic hyperglycaemic symptoms occurs much more frequently in children and young adults, when less than 30% of β-cells remain.
