HI THERE! I AM NEW TO THIS BOARD. ANYWAYS, I WAS DUE ON MY PERIOD THE 4TH OF JULY. I HAVEN'T HAD IT YET. I TOOK 2 DIFFERENT PREG. TEST. THEY BOTH CAME BACK NEGATIVE. I AM NOT ON BIRTH CONTROL BUT USED "PROTECTION". I STARTED THE ATKINS DIET JUNE 1RST AND HAVE LOST 24 LBS IN A LITTLE OVER A MONTH. I HAVE READ ON SERVERAL SITES THAT A FAST PACE LOST OF DIET CAN MESS UP YOUR PERIOD. HAS ANYONE ELSE HEARD THIS? I HAVE 2 OTHER KIDS AND BOTH TESTS CAME UP CLEARLY POSITIVE BEFORE MY PERIOD WAS DUE. DON'T REALLY HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS. JUST FEEL A LITTLE CRAMPY (PRESSURE).
I AM NOT READY FOR ANOTHER CHILD YET. BUT LATER ON DOWN THE ROAD WHEN FINANCES ARE BETTER. TAKING THE TEST WAS VERY STRESSFUL. SHOULD I TEST AGAIN?
My period was six days late the month that I started kickboxing pretty regulary and I am NEVER late. I think that serious dieting or excercise can definitely throw your body off for a month or two. Don't worry- I'm sure your period will show. Good luck (and congrats on the 24 pounds!). Annie
