    I've been 28-days regular for the past three years at least (since I started charting), but this last month I was one week late!! I think it has to do with two things:


    1. trauma/stress: I had my wisdom teeth out four weeks ago

    2. flax: I started making and consuming lots of flax bread


    I have no idea how much the primal diet would have affected my cycle. I've gone hard-core primal in the past and it hasn't affected my cycle.

      Seriously...since I started practicing intermittent fasting on top of primal nutrition and exercise, I went for 11 months straight without menstruating at all. That plus the fact I was cold all the time prompted me to start eating more and more often.


      Although I regained all the weight I lost and am about 22% body fat now, I still haven't had a period naturally. My OB/GYN prescribed pills (first progesterone/Provera and then a combo estrogen/progesterone birth control pill) that eventually led a single menstrual cycle, I'm still waiting to see if I can be fertile on my own. Sigh! Which is to say, as with everything, YMMV, right?
