When Aunt Flo' Don't Come No Mo'

*Girls Only! :)

Hi ladies, let's talk about extreme weight loss, on any diet, and how it might affect your menses!
Very exciting, I know!

Once again, a note, I am not a Doctor and if your period stops completely or you notice anything eird happening with your monthly visitor, I urge you to see your physician.

Is it normal for your period to get wonky because of rapid weight loss?


Your body basically goes into that starvation mode you have heard so much about. What happens to a woman's body when it goes into starvation mode? Your body thinks that since it is starving (because it's fat stores are being depleted so quickly) that if you were to carry a child, it would kill you. So your body kills your period.

Don't worry, it will come back. I have read stories about a woman who lost a lot of weight after a stomach stapling surgery, she missed her period for 6 months straight. Please note, no matter what, if you are behind in your period by 3 months you need to talk to your doctor.

Being late, having incredibly light flow, having a shorter period, those are all normal when going through extreme weight loss. You might still be moody, get bloated, have cramps, but no physical period proof. It's all normal.

Now, you need to know it's possibly you are still ovulating and it is possible to get pregnant. You should always use protection anyways for fear of STIs, but don't think you can go wild and condomless because your period isn't coming anytime soon.

So I hope I answered a few shy questions. Yes, calm down. It's normal for you to be late. See your doctor and bring tampons with you just in case it decides to start up again at random.
