Shaunimar- I have heard of others with PCOS issues suddenly getting a period and some even conceiving during or after this diet. I have PCOS too and did the whole infertility work up and bc and clomid....I'm sorry you've been through all of that too. I control my angry ovaries and other symptoms with the Depo provera shot, which has halted my 16-day-long periods and giant cysts, and caused me insulin resistance, which is the reason I turned to HCG....sick of taking metformin to lose weight and being sick all the time! Lots of women on these boards complain of their periods starting off schedule, even while on birth control, after starting the hcg protocol. I'm sure you have read about our dear Katie and her period woes, poor girl. But yeah, I think the HCG started your period. Some people halt dosing with HCG until I think the 3rd day of the period, some don't. I don't know how it helps or hurts. I don't have periods at all thanks to Depo, not bragging, just so grateful.
I would say something to each of you but this board has been crazy busy. I am following all of you though and want to congratulate all of you on losing. I love this forum and the supportive people here. I once posted on Sparks people defending an HCGer that was being attacked and boy did they let me have it! I won't ever post on there about this diet again. They called me "pro-ana" and a bad mother and an eating disorder advocate... they were vicious. It was bad! I didn't say anything back because I didn't feel like wasting my time arguing with ignorant people. Glad to have this enlightened little group to hang out with.
As for me-It is VLCD 15 and I'm losing according to plan, .4 to .6 daily on most days, lost 1.4 day before yesterday. I'm dying to get into the 150's, almost there. I'm not having the hunger problems anymore. I am eating my apple for breakfast and another in the afternoon before dinner. It makes the meals smaller but keeps me content in between. I am feeling so much better since I started taking my multivitamins and calcium and mineral combo. My brain is even more alert which is good for being at home with an almost 5-yr-old during the day. I never replaced my wardrobe after last round because I knew I was still losing. I need clothes desperately but I don't want to buy any until I am done. It feels good that my workout clothes are now too big! Last time I stopped the HCG, I stabilized 2 pounds below LDW but still lost 2 inches in the hips within 2 weeks of P3 just from tightening up. The pants I bought then are huge now! It is weird to not feel like getting dressed because I am too skinny. Never had that problem in my life! Anyway, I gotta go drink some tea. My vitacost order just showed up and I got my cheap vanilla stevia! Thanks again for that!
