I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this -

since starting the BTD in June my cycle has gone from approx 24-28 days to 32-35 days. In fact, this month I am up to day 44 and still haven't got it!

I am healthy, of normal weight and aged 31 and also NOT PREGNANT!! Possibly a recent overseas trip to Europe with lots of avoids could be the reason for this month's cycle to be so messed up...

Hi Katht - sometimes- just travelling OR being with other women than you normal are with mess up things.
When my sister stays at my place in the summer we alawys both have changes in our cyclus- it is like we try to get our period at the same time.
At school - my best friends and I alwys had our periods at the same time.

But it is not uncommon that stress or travelling can mess up things- also lifestyle cahnges like BTD can change things.
I went from 32 days- to 28-29 days when I started BTD

BUt maybe you should get checked out proper- to rule out that notting is wrong.

This is most amazing - and wonderful. I don't have a sister, and it's the first time I hear about this phenomenon. † †I wonder what Nature's rationale causes this.

There is a facinating novel called The Red Tent that deals with this subject in wonderful detail.

do you also follow the frequency values given for soy, linseed, and other estrogenic foods?

btd is very balancing in that regard and too much or too little of certain foods can cause an imbalance in cycles.

isoflavone products, and get the benefits of

I find that when I am eating too many avoids - especially wheat and corn my cycle will get messed up and be too long.  You mentioned traveling and eating avoids - which could be causing the problem.  It could be different for an A than an O though as well - so that's just a guess.

Yael, the shifting cycle phenomenon has something, I believe, to do with women's pheromones being able to "smell" each other, even though people don't consciously smell pheromones. This would be women who are living or working or something together. The womens' cycles shift to follow a "leader."
The theories I am aware of are at least a couple decades old, and I haven't been keeping up with all the science....
So, girls, if I'm wrong don't yell at me....

I find that travelling, even for  a short time can mess up my period. also I have noticed that maybe once/twice a year i seem to have a longer gap (up to two weeks later thatn expected), my only theory is that maybe it's due to changing seasons.

I don't really follow frequencies for the BTD as I don't have the book - I just try to keep things in balence - maybe it is something to look in to though...I've been meaning to get the book for a while...

By the way my periord turned up today - 46 days!

katht, I've been having difficulties lately, but I don't think it's to do with the BTD. I've been on it longer than my cycles have been going wonky. At the end of the summer I had a period, then nothing for 44 days, then the worst cramping and bleeding ever for two days, then nothing. Then 19 days later, I had  a normal period. WTH?

After discussing this with folks, I decided to try Progest-E. I had one period that came in the normal 26 days after using it, and am waiting for the second one now. I think that I am heavy on the estrogen side and light on the progesterone side, but the jury is still out.

On another note, almost every vacation I've been on over the last few years, I've gotten my period; just seems to work out that way...even if it wasn't due. This last one (5 days in the Utah desert) was period free. Whoo-hoo!


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Both times I was pregnant, I seemed to have friends who were also pregnant.  If one of them when into labor, those women who were having problems with their bodies trying to deliver too soon tried to stay away from the women in labor.  It would somehow trigger their bodies to begin contractions, so we all had to be careful.  We all ended up delivering very close to the same time even though some of us delivered early and some had extra long pregnancies.

If my periods continue to be whacky I think I might investigate my hormone levels etc...or start taking ProgestE like you Drea...When I finally got my period the other day it was pretty heavy and crampy!

Well, I got my period after 25 days. My regular cycle length before all this wackiness started was 26 days, so I'm hopeful that the Progest-E is actually working to balance me out. So far, there is minimal cramping (not enough for an Advil, even) and normal bleeding. Yay!

Good news, Drea!    I hope the good trend continues, and your hormones keep moving toward normal.

I just got my third normal cycle in a row while on the Progest-E. Whoo-hoo!

Thanks for the recommendation, Victoria!

I did read an article somewhere on vegweb dot com that increasing your level of soy intake can increase your periods, so maybe that is a factor, especially in an A type diet.
