Period weight gain?

Everything I've read online suggests water retention should ease by the first day or two of your period.
Im defo holding water, I'm on day 5 of my period, its becoming lighter but I'm still holding water.
Weigh in day weds, I've always lost even on my period, but my scales haven't budged at home and I've been so good and on plan!
Feeling a bit disheartened, maybe a little ahead of myself but just wondered if anyone else holds their water weight during their period, right up until it ends?
Like I said, everything online suggests it flushes out during first day or two?

My scales at home have sometimes said i have gained 3 Ibs during my period but i have always lost come weighing day. I guess i have just maybe been lucky with where my period starts and when weighing day falls.
Try not to let it get you down. If you know that you have been good and stuck with your eating plan then it's ok. It is gutting when you have been told you have gained but the next weighing should be a good result.

I don't get any bleeding but my symptoms vary. And I always gain. I drink lots of water to help flush it out.
