And, yes, I think there's something to taking your temp while you're still in bed. I don't remember why, but that's how I do it. It gives me a minute to snuggle in bed and check my email on my phone while I'm waiting! I have adrenal issues so my temps often drop after I get out of bed - I'm talking within minutes - so I try to be consistent whenever I can. Sometimes I'll have to dart to the bathroom before I can temp, and sometimes I forget, but most of the time, I can manage. I hope you can, too!

I was supposed to start my cycle on Tuesday (I am on Day 16 of Whole30) but I've only been spotting and just today finally kicked in a little more. Much, much lighter and much less cramping than usual. It would be awesome if it stayed like this but we'll see. Off of hormonal BC, I normally had moderately heavy, painful periods (somewhat better after having kids but my copper IUD sort of made it worse, although not as bad as it used to be!)

I thought that taking my temp each morning would be really annoying. But the alarm goes off 7 days a week at 7:30 and I take my temp. I actually look forward to it! Most days lately I wake up before the alarm goes off and just take my temp then. So long as it is plus or minus an hour it is fine. Good luck MamaDrew!

Uhg - I attribute mine to the fact I never got the "carb flu" or any adverse effects of the whole30 and now I am paying for it, lol. (probably not but it makes me feel better)

The other thing that helped with my pain was switching from tampons to a menstrual cup. I personally use the Diva Cup and adore it. I can go 8 to 12 hours without needing to hit a bathroom. I have two so I can immediately put in the new one before cleaning the other one. Keep an open mind and you might be able to forget you're having your period for 12 hours too!

I got my period a week early this time, I am using Nuvaring so I'm a little concerned because I am always on time off by no more than a day or so and it's very heavy. Does this diet have any affect on BC?
I'm on the Nuvaring too, get my period within the same 1-2 day range every month, and I just started my period a week early!! Did you find anything out amylynn? I'm planning on calling my Dr. if I can't find answers...

If I am spotting, does this mean that my BC is ineffective right now? Should I abstain from unprotected sex?

I've been on the pill for years as well and every time I've cut out grains & dairy my period has come early (within the first few days of starting). I spoke to the nurse at my surgery about it and she said it wasn't anything to be concerned about. She also didn't think it had anything to do with diet...

So I started my whole30 on jan 5. I am on, and have been on BC, since dawn of time (ok, since I was a teenager and I am now 31) and for the past 2 to 3 years on minastrin 24 FE. anyway, period is like clockwork, but I woke up saturday morning with bleeding, which puts it about 10 days early. I am happy to see that I am not the only one. I don't know if the whole30 has anything to do with these fluctuations but reading your posts make me feel much better. I did call doc but she wasn't there. waiting to hear back. I know we are supposed to hide our scales but in the past week, I am down about 6 pounds, so I don't know if this drastic change really does cause fluctuations with hormones.
anyway, just wanted to share. I have been a bit nervous about it the past couple days. And now, I don't really know if I should expect it when it normally comes (inactive pills)
ugh, woman issues.
