I’m on week 7 of the BSD, 800 calories a day one.
I’ve lost just over 2 stone.
But it seems this has made my hormones go to pot. Is this usual or expected?
My normal cycle has shortened and my usual ovulation bleed was very exaggerated. Along with a couple of other weird symptoms, including being convinced I had a UTI but all the tests coming back clear. I’ve been in the doctors and had an examination. She thinks that all the symptoms can be explained by the quick weight loss and the effect on oestrogen. I’m having trouble believing her and am worried about more serious things. Even though the timing absolutely points to the weight loss as explanatory!
I can see how hormones could go a bit haywire. But I also feel like my bladder is being weird. Sloshing and swooshing. Doctor said loss of fat around the organs can make everything unstable and feel odd as it moves around.
Is that a thing?
I’m considering getting back to the doctors and insisting on ruling out anything more serious but she was very convinced of her diagnosis and didn’t feel it was necessary to investigate further. And she’s probably right. But the weird bladder feelings and the dodgy menstrual cycle continues.
I guess I’m just asking if anyone else has ever experienced this type of issue while doing the BSD?
