Sorry for being ignorant but what difference, if any, does having your monthly visitor, or the week before it arrives, have on your weight?

I always seem to be heavier leading up to and until its finished. From talking with the girls at work I have come to the conclusion this is normal and most deal with it, but you should go back to your normal weight straight after. So not to worry!

actually you apparently only lose about 3 tablespoons of blood during that time of the month. however your body retains a lot of fluid and thats what contributes to it all.

Oh that ABSOLUTELY afftects my weight. I've been known to hold around 3kg in fluid. It sucks.

There are some good supplements out there for flushing out excess water (without dehydrating you of course). Celery or celeriac are supposed to be good for water retention.

I definitely hold weight with mine (which is right now!!) but I suppose I can expect a good loss next week!!!

before i got the implant and stopped getting my period i used to bloat up beforehand, sausage fingers and all. Apparently asparagus is great for water retention!
