Hi everyone, would be really appreciated if anyone could give me some advice or if anyone has been in a similar situation to let me know as I'm loosing my mind ☹️

TTC baby #2 with PCOS so already finding things really difficult.

I have recently lost 4 stone since the begging of the year, trying to change my life around and become more active and healthy. Since loosing 3 stone I have been bleeding for a whole month with big blood clots everyday. (Sorry TMI)
I hadn't previously had a period for a couple of month prior to this.

Has anyone been in a similar situation?
Could the weight loss be getting things going and should I let nature take its course?
Any help or suggestions or advice would be really appreciated. Thank you smile

It is possible. Give it another month to see if it settles and if not see your GP

How have you been losing the weight? I always find that keto does this to me if I restart it. Hope it settles down quickly for you.

Thank you for your reply's smile

I'm not really following any specific diet I've just cut out all the bad food I was eating. I'm eating between 800-1200 calories a day, trying not to have many carbs. I'm hoping it's just my body's way of getting back to normal. Fingers crossed!

800 is extremely low - is your GP involved with your weight loss programme?

Might be worth getting checked out, 1200 is the absolute minimum for a large majority of people and even then, only for shorter people.

The NHS BMI calculator gives you a personalised calorie goal that might be helpful to you
