After having my very first DD in over a month yesterday, I just got my TOM this morning and it had been almost 6 wks. late. Can it be our female hormones are that sensitive to very low calories?

I only weighed a pound less, so it's not like there was a big whoosh that might have shocked my system.

P.S. Hope you have a wonderful vacation in Florida Carly!

Looking at the posts - seems peri-menopausal seems to win out - I'm 45 and for the past year - TOM has been a bugger - and some of that time I've been dieting - other times I haven't - there hasn't been any correlation - it could be a 'chicken & egg' situation!

Since the start of this year - I've been as follows

29 days
9 days
16 days (that was fun!)
38 days (hallelujah!)
27
25
26
27
31
26
26

My app claims my cycle is 25 days - used to be 29 - but you can see that is seriously 'averaging'!!!

In theory 3 more days to go - and I'm betting that isn't going to be happening

TMI - oh well - it's good to share what we're all going through!

I was kinda hoping the hot flashes I was experiencing up to recently, would help counter act the freezing cold shivers I usually have on DDs.

No such luck in the hormonal hell of peri-menopause!

I figured there would be a thread on this, glad I searched it.

My cycles have been regular for the last several years however, this month I got it a week early (within 2 weeks of my last one). I started getting cramps and stuff yesterday and felt like I was getting but I thought maybe it was just ovulation cramps because it was way too early but then I noticed some spotting and today I can definitely see that I got it :-P

Even though I've been doing some iteration of JUDDD for almost 10months, this is the first time I've done JUDDD within the caloric range defined in the calculator. I track my moods and cycles so I'll make note of this but just wondering if there's anything to be concerned about?

Many months later and TOM is still all messed up. I'm still doing 5:2 and getting it too often. It's actually a nice idea to consider doing EOD with really low DDs when I need a break from constant TOM. Of course I still want to get pregnant so I really don't want to screw up my cycle too much

Have you gone to the doctor about the constant TOM? I think you should especially if it's been happening for so many months. Are you actively trying to get pregnant? Sorry if the last question is too personal - but I really think you should because I think it could affect fertility.

My cycle has been super-regular lately and I was wondering why...I've never in my life been particularly regular except when I was on the pill. Then I remembered that metformin (which I take for diabetes) is commonly prescribed for women who have PCOS, especially if they want to get pregnant. It helps with fertility and making ovulation more regular. My cycle went from being anywhere between 25-35 days to exactly 28 days. I've even been getting it on the same day of the week for months!

Carly, I remember you were taking diabetes medications when you started JUDDD but you were able to stop taking them...was one of the meds metformin? If so, did your irregularity start after you went off it? Maybe taking it again would stop the short cycles and make things more predictable.

I have had three extra periods since I started JUDDD in late January, in addition to my regular every three weeks gig. 42, prob peri for me, but my Obgyn did say that losing a large amount of weight like 30 lbs can mess with the cycle. I did not tell her I was doing IF. I personally don't think it's the WOE that is messing with me.
