    My first two primal periods were longer cycles, and flow was heavy and kinda weird. The third was normal, and the last one was one of my best periods ever (no cramps!!!). So yeah, give it time. I do notice my periods start with less and less warning, but I have always been an immediate gusher, I'm used to the damage control.


    Also - since going primal I never spot between periods any more, my acne cleared up, and my boobs are growing (I am trying to gain weight, not lose it). It appears to be extremely benficial for my hormones.

    It can be an age thing too, my OBGYN nicely told me that the older we get the more insane the hormones get, the heavier and weirder it gets. For me, it actually reduced in length, instead of being 4-6 days, its now more like three days. One of those is pretty much heavy all day flow.


    Oh, but also, I never had a regular cycle, now, since eating this way it's pretty regular.

    I wish my period came back Y_Y (I can't believe I'm saying this...), we parted ways a year ago and it hasn't shown its ugly face in *these* parts of town.


    Has anyone here gotten their periods on Primal after it's been absent?

    Does anyone here has PCOS? How're you dealin'? :]


    The Samurai analogy made me lol.

    @NSWM - yes and yes. Primalish since late summer '09, two long cycles (about 6-8 weeks each) since then- previously had two natural periods EVER. And these were light and easy to deal with, as opposed to be bent double in agony.

    Overall, feeling much better, have kicked all the various meds and hormones and am slooooooowly trying to fix things.


    @hippie mama, how are you feeling today?

    The only thing I've noticed since tinkering with PB for the last few months, is that I don't have any PMS and if I don't mark the calendar, I'm totally caught off guard. This last time especially. I thought I was a week early, since no PMS at all, but I checked the calendar and I was right on time. Weird, but good! Oh, and I've had the sploosh thing before. Usually at least once or twice during my 2nd day. It's normal for me. Nothing too weird.

    Carpe Diem!

    I think it's over; just some spotting, which is normal for me on day 3-4ish. I'm relieved it didn't go extra long or anything. *whew!* Of course, if it comes back early, i'll probably be here complaining again!

    Not without- I used to have pcos, once I had both kids, my hormones normalized, but at the same time I also started to reduce carbs and do some hard core researching on how to loose this weight.

    My first primal period ended last week, so I'll throw my data into the mix. =] I had no PMS symptoms until the day before (breast tenderness - usually happens a week in advance!). My period was a little late (day 30, where my average is 25) but that fluctuates a lot for me anyway.


    More relevantly: it was definitely heavier than usual... and I usually have one really heavy day but this time I had 3! I'm not sure I'd notice a "sploosh" since I use a menstrual cup, so I'm no help there.

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.
