Low carb and long heavy period
Any of you ladies have long heavy periods in the beginning of LCing? I have always had whacky cycles. Basically not having a period at all. Couple times a year. After starting LC mine are crazy heavy and very long. I'm wondering if this will subside after a few months or what!? DH and I are trying for a baby and that's hard to do with a period for 20 some days! Went to a fertility Dr who put me on Metformin to assist in ovulation. Any suggestions or anyone in same position?

hey there, i am new to LC'ing myself, but i had the same issue, i researched and found that when you loose stored fat, it realease the estrogen that was stored in the fat, and can make your cycles kinda crazy for a while, but they will return to normal, i cant remember the website, but if you google it, you might be able to find out some more info. i too am ttc, not taking met though, i heard it can help good luck to you :)
