This is pretty common. It’s because of the flush of hormones being released into your bloodstream. As you lose weight, the oestrogen that was stored in your fat is released which causes the difficult periods - heavy, bad pmt, irregular, etc.

Being menopausal, I had the reverse situation. All the oestrogen stopped my menopausal symptoms. Unfortunately, now I’m in maintenence & all the stored oestrogen is gone, the hot flushes are back.

Hahahaha, well, I've been picked up by the ambulance every month on the dot for the last 5 months. Always 5 days before period, with stomach pains.

I realize I never had any sort of PMS or menstrual pain before. Was just imaging it. The only difference is that before I almost bleed to death, and now I don't bleed enough to put a tampon in.
