I wanted to ask something to see if anyone else has had a similar experience. I got off of birth control pills in July, and from August to November I was constantly sick with the flu or things like it. Getting sick had nothing to do with getting off the pills, but it inspired me to make a change. The second to last time I was sick I said â€œThatâ€™s enough!â€ and I learned about going raw and did it. I did a slow transition. Now, after getting off pills in July (i got off because i learned how detrimental it is to my body and i felt HORRIBLE) I had two strange, light and irregular periods. Once I was late a month and a half. After beginning to go raw, I didnâ€™t have a period for 3 months. For the past 2 months Iâ€™ve been about 50 to 70% raw and have felt pretty awesome. Iâ€™ve been staying up later and having more energy, skin cleared up, lost weight, no sicknesses and all my headaches and acid indigestion has disappeared. BUT still no periods.
So, my question is: Did I not have periods for the past 3 months (2 raw months) because I was detoxing and the hormones from the pills were being re-released into my blood system? I have around 2 years worth probably stored up in my body somewhere. Or is it completely unrelated?? I finally had my first real period since July yesterday. I slept 17 hours yesterday and 15 today, I have a slight headache and feel like doing nothing and earlier this week I felt like I was getting a cold. Is this menstruation coming as part of detoxing or is it just good â€˜ol fashioned PMS?? Anybody have any experiences or thoughts that may go with my situation?
