  • Nutritiona Ketosis and Menstruation irregularities?

    Ive been on a high fat, moderate protein and low carb diet in order to minimize MS symptoms. I know fat is good for the nervous system. However this month, I noticed I barely had any normal bleeding, just very light spotting that has lasted 8 days now.

    I wonder if it is because Im in a state of ketosis or having very few carbs, definitely around <50. Maybe my body thought I was starving, or some hormonal shift happened so it decided not to bleed? Also maybe because Im autoimmune my body is already too taxed? Can I add a piece of fruit and still be in ketosis?
