Is it normal to lose and gain weight while on your period?

Hi there and welcome.  Yes, that is pretty normal.  Hormones can affect things like cravings and what we eat as well as water retention and bloating.  So, weight going up and down right before, during and after your period is hormonally related.  

The joys of being a woman, right?

good luck
