        • hey you - couple things:

          -I thought basal was best taken right at awakening, while still laying in bed. Because any movement starts to ramp up body temp and skews the reading. When I tried tracking years ago, this is what messed me up; it was dark out, I was half zonked and always swore I'd remember the temp to write down but ... rarely did.

          -completely agree it was/is a valuable exercise from which every woman gains a ton of info about herself. Unfortunately, i never mastered identifying the cervical position. But loved the book I used, Taking Charge of Your Fertility, 10th Anniversary Edition: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive Health: Toni Weschler: 9780060881900: Amazon.com: Books

          -YB - what the hell girlie?! I too continue the struggle w/ the hair health questions and am starting to suspect its because I do things in fits and starts. Gelatin has made a noticeable impact on my nails but my hair, while falling less, is not regenerating like it used to. Biotin made me break out. So I'm thinking of going back thru and trying to compile everything Derp et al have suggested and review. I mean, reviewing Graycats experience, it sounds like she's doing every suggestion. What is your plan, aside from the iron debate?

              oh geez, wow. I'm sorry, didn't see this post, as I was busy rambling to you at length. Do you have some ginger, to add to a fizzy drink? Personally I overdid it on dairy yesterday and felt deeply anxious, with similar "feel like hell". I so hope you feel better! Rub your sternum in relaxing circles, take a big breath. You'll be ok. You know you will.

                • Hey guys <3

                  Thank you so much for the kind words. Jesus H. Christ, that was a dark few hours. Reminded me of when I used to be severely depressed last winter.

                  Could this really be hormonal? It seems crazy that such severe emotions could be simply caused by too much oestrogen. But that's what it's pointing to...

                  That's when I'm taking it. As soon as I wake up I take my pulse, then take my temp, and input the data into my phone (which I'm already using as a stop watch / light).

                  Thanks for the link! It would be cool for find a resource that was about using tracking to balance your hormones. Everything seems to be about trying to conceive...

                  I think it depends on the factors around the hair loss. Gray started losing hair when she went low carb so it makes sense that upping carbs would reverse this. My hair first started to suffer when I went vegetarian, age 18. Last year, when I started eating meat again, my hair probably thickened by a third. Three months ago, when I drastically cut my meat intake, I started losing hair again. So I'm going to try upping red meat considerably and seeing what happens...

                  Can you pinpoint when you started losing hair?
                  "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                  In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                    First off I will admit I have not read your whole log, nor all of the posts in response but when I read your distress the first thing that came to my mind was the fat loss. And I hope one of the smarties knows something about what happens when you are burning through fat stores (pufas) and releasing toxins. Don't our cells hold our memories and experiences to some extent? And couldn't the process of turning over cells or burning fat release not only toxins but bad memories?

                    I barely skimmed your last post to see you are feeling better. I have similar episodes (I thought I was going to puke for much of yesterday and I carried a darkness with me I couldn't pinpoint). Better days for you I hope <3

                        I've wondered; you've said you had no period for some time and recently, it returned w/ that 14 day schedule and now up to 20+ days? Can you imagine what floods of hormonal extremes are going on for you, as you return to fertility? And in really quick time frames?

                        On the other hand, I had a fit of giggles when you reported the other day that you had cramps. You were so excited. Can't recall the last time I've been excited for their appearance. That was a cute moment.

                        • I'm glad that you're feeling better.

                          Hormones are crazy, crazy things. It could also be the fat loss, possibly?? I know you can test positive for THC if you've suddenly lost a lot of weight and used to smoke because THC is fat soluble and gets stored in your fat cells.

                          Taking Charge of Your Fertility is a good book. I used to work with Toni's brother when I was in college, and he helped her write the book. That was the first time I tried to chart my cycle. It lasted about 3 days. I was 19, lol!

                          • Leida, Moluv: thanks you so much for the kind words! They mean a lot.

                            I'm 100% convinced this is hormonal and not fat loss related as I haven't lost any weight in the last two weeks (I've realised I only lose weight in the follicular phase of my cycle. Too much oestrogen in the luteal phase )

                            That is such an insightful and beautiful way of putting it... thank you! It makes sense. Ever since I started feeling better my periods have become really severe - whereas before I felt shit all the time so I barely noticed my cycle, ha! So there is definitely something happening. I'm just really pissed off that I haven't lifted weights in more than a week now

                            In that case, upping your carbs from the right sources should be enough to help with the hair loss. Do what Gray did

                                I'm still nursing my daughter and no period yet. My last real period was in end of July 2010. I miscarried in August, conceived my daughter in September, and haven't had a period since. According to my research, periods return for nursing mothers around 13 months or so postpartum, but my daughter is almost 28 months, no period.

                                Around 6 months ago, I spent some time looking for signs of fertility-- any cervical fluid or pimples or anything.. took my temps... no discernable patterns and I just gave up. I get all excited whenever I get cramps or break out, which has happened a few times, but didn't result in anything.

                                Things supposedly change after pregnancy and postpartum, so I probably won't know what's 'normal' for me until my first post-partum period returns.

                                Still, this stuff really interests me, and I do think women should know more about their bodies.
