TOM 15 days apart



jeepers creepers. I am 48... presumably perimenopausal. I have had a short period cycle since having twins 16 years ago, and heavy. but 15 days??? I read that this may mean I did not ovulate at all last cycle... and vlc dieting can affect this.

anyone else notice with JUDDDing any untoward impacts on TOM?

why some old bag my age (Or a little 12 yr old, for that matter) needs a dang TOM at all is beyond me!!!! erggg.

Have you been following this thread?
How bad does TOM affect the JUDDD experience?

Sorry about the TOMs...mine have been a little shorter (2-4 days, so 26ish instead of 28-30ish) since I started JUDDDing. Hoping they will get a little longer again now that's I've stopped JUDDDing!

A growing concern to some is how IF/JUDDD may effect TOM, rather than the other way around.

Haha, I didn't notice that...but toward the bottom of page 1, the conversation switched from how TOM affects JUDDD weight loss to whether JUDDD/IF affects the TOM cycle.

I'm just going to put some of my experience here. I don't know if it'll help anyone or not. I'm still trying to figure some of this out.
A couple months ago I decided to combine LC/HF with JUDDD. My periods were all over the place. One time I start 20 days after the last time I started and then the time after that was 7 weeks later. Also I started having trouble sleeping. Major mood swings. Around that time I read the article on Paleo for Women. I really thought about giving up JUDDDing. I even started a thread about it a while back.
I decided before I gave up juddd I would first try not eating LC/HF. I eat a little more than before on DDs. I don't count carbs.
I am sleeping 100 times better but I haven't been doing this long enough to tell if the cycles are back on track.

I just wanted to add that my weight isn't as low as I want it to be but I want to take care of my body in all aspects. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what it needs. For now eating a little more on DDs and eating some carbs is helping with sleep.
We are really learning as we go aren't we. Sometimes I feel like a lab rat!

Thank you for this, Jbinme!
If you've seen the other thread, I've been really worried about how IF/JUDDD has been affecting my cycles so I think I'm going to try just calorie counting instead of combining LC/HF with JUDDD.
We become so focused on weight loss, we don't realize how taxing it can be for the body and that taking care of it should be our first priority.

I'm going to keep an eye on this... I have only been LC on my DD... because carbs are not that filling, so mostly been eating protein and cabbage... just this past week I have been more HF/LC on DD (eg bullet proof coffee) to see... but on my UD, I eat tons of fruit, granola bars, spuds, etc (within calorie limits, and with prot, veg, fat). hmmmmm....

I was on the pill for a few years, pretty much continuously for around 3 months and then a mini-period, and then another 3 months etc. cuz I found bleeding like a stuck pig every 3 weeks or so a bit of a drag in a new relationship ()... but I felt like the BC pill was contributing to creeping weight gain , and once BF and I settled down a bit (we have now been together 3.5 yrs), I thought well go off BC pill (about a year ago) and see if maybe it's not so bad. Ugg. I am tracking it, and will speak to my doc soonish to see if I have any options such as ablation or IUD.

and sorry if TMI

I love having an IUD. I've had it 4 yrs. My dr said most stop having their period but I still have mine. Light and not too bad except when it got out of whack like I mentioned above.
