For Ladies Only: A Keto Guide

Shark week. Checking into the Red Roof Inn. Surfing the Crimson Wave. Getting a visit from Aunt Flo. The Red Badge of Courage. That time of the month. Whatever euphemism you use for it, women inevitably have to deal with menstruation and all the weird junk that goes along with it.

    Good morning lovely keto ladies,
    I am two weeks into starting keto and today I have the worst period cramps ever. I haven't had period cramps since I got the Mirena IUD inserted 4 years ago so I am a little baffled. Especially when I'm reading how keto fixes bad period cramps. What am I doing wrong here? Any advice is appreciated because I love keto and would like to KCKO. :)

    It will get better, each period will get a little bit better. For me, I was back to normal by my 4th keto period.
