    yeah, there's definitely been a lot of discussion of spotting and stranger cycles than normal for folks.

    As for TOM and weight loss. Honestly, give it til about 3 days after TOM. I didn't lose weight for a week and a half then within 2 days of TOM ending I was 4 pounds lighter. I definitely didn't do ANYTHING different to cause that reaction, so it had to be TOM.

    I've read here that Phen and Tom will butt heads ... so hopefully this will be the worst of it for you.

    I really hope it ends soon because this is frustrating. I've talked to my gyno and she said that the Nuvaring being out for that short amount of time shouldn't have caused my period to go longer or heavier. So i guess it is the Phen. Ugh.

    I do know that phen can mess with TOM. The first month i took it i was like a week late and the second month tom came twice. Now i am on time but i spot sometimes during the middle of my cycle. Be carefull though lost of people have gotten prego while on phen.

    Default Plateau, the condom and TOM?

    I'm feeling really down. It's almost a week since I went for my first weigh-in (tomorrow will be my 3rd week on Phen) and my weight is the same - I haven't even lost an ounce. I don't know if it's because it's TOM or what? Is it possible i've hit a plateau (sp?) this soon?

    Speaking of TOM? WTH is going on? TMI coming: I did the deed sometime last week, the condom came off and my idiot boyfriend pulled out my Nuvaring while trying to get it. So I washed and put the ring back in within 5-10 minutes. Since then i've had spotting and then a full period (period was due to come soon anyway). Even though I've put in my new ring a couple of days ago, period is still going - way heavier than usual. Could this long and heavier period be due to Phen? Will it stop? i'm going out of my mind because of this period thing.

    Off to the gym I go (even though it doesn't seem to be doing anything anymore).
