Strange Milk Cravings
Hi,
I am new to the forum, and I'm Portuguese so I'm sorry about my English.
I'm seeking advice about what to do about my milk craving during my period.
I almost don't drink any milk during the rest of the month, and try to stay away from cheese (since it ruins my skin unless it's low fat) but during my period, especially the first three days I have this incredible cravings for milk, and tend to drink lots of it especially cold and with chocolate. I feel a little sick and bloatted after I drink it, but I do it anyway.
Is this normal?

Thank you for your help,

Tânia Ferreira

Hello, Tania;

There is something in chocolate that women do crave during their periods, I have read.  So maybe you associate the milk with the chocolate, and that is part of it.  Women also often crave sugar during their period.  My guess would be that there is something in the milk as well that your body simply desires more of when your hormones are at a particular place in your cycle.  I wouldn't worry, it seems very normal to me.

Welcome to the forum!
