Continuing on from another thread on the topic of period problems... my period has gotten so much worse since going primal/paleo! Has anyone else experienced the same? I had adopted vegetarianism about 2 years before my first menstruation and for years I never experienced such intense depression or bad pain as I do now, although it was very very scant before reintroducing meat into my diet to the point of not even needing to use towels or tampons (I know that's really bad) and it would last maybe 24 hours 2 days max! Now it's heavier, I feel like I'm getting scraped out with a spatula and the depression is unbelivable, I literally had no will to live for a few days there. I used to get in an exceptionally good mood on my period wierdly enough in my vegetarian days. I'm also getting a bit narky which never used to happen. I'm not sure if it's that now I'm getting plenty of iron now and so I'm having a very healthy and so difficult period or whether my horomones are after getting out of whack from the meat or some other changes to my diet. I'm confused! yesterday I took two neurofen plus and I was still in considerable pain normally I fell fantastic after two of those bad boys. I was thinking evening primrose oil might be worth taking and Cillkat kindly suggested Krill oil so I'm going to order some on iherb, but if anyone has any insight into what's going on it'd be great.
No announcement yet.
Girly troubles (not for boys!)
