    I've only been on phen for two weeks but the thought of possibly having a lighter cycles has me jumping for joy!!! My cycle is usually extremely heavy which is one reason I wanted to loose weight. My doctor told me that being overweight can cause my cycle to be heavier. It would be even better if I was the fortunate one not to have a cycle in 6 weeks WOOHOO!!!! But my advice to women who are still in their child bearing years (which is up to 50 these days) is to talk to your ob gyn about the effect phen is having on your cycle and ability to reproduce.

    my period is LIGHTER since I took phen. I havne't bene taking phen this past month so we'll see if that changes.....I don't like my period lighter cause it makes me feel like i'm going into menopause or something...I used to have a really heavy flow.....not that i liked it really heavy either but I just hate how phen is messing with my hany nonny stuff.
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    i don't think it is possible for the scale to move that much in a day......wow..phen has also messed with my cycle but in a good way i have been on it a month and a few days and didn't have a cycle this time around. nope no preggo. preggo requires having a male body. don't have one. so sorry for everybody and there bad experiences just writing to say all the experiences aren't bad. good luck everyone

    Hey sis! LOL. Glad to see I'm not alone (not that I'm glad any of yall are experiencing this). The bloating seems a little better today (seems to have been replaced with flaming rage). This morning I was so scared to step on the scale that I walked around it and near it for like five minutes! Finally got on and I saw 179!! Now of course I'm worried that tomorow I'll weigh and be back to 193.

    try diurex for the week before and during TOM it works wonders at relieving bloat and that stuffed feeling also during TOM watch your sodium intake, it's usually just water retention. And even if your tierd of peeing after that make sure to keep up your water intake.

    Ugh. TOM stopped yesterday morning (or the night before). Hopefully this feeling goes away real soon. I feel like a grilled stuffed burrito. LOL

    Mapgirl, my BMs are actually better than ever. LOL. I guess I mean I'm more regular than I was before Phen.

    Divine_Agape, I started mine before it was time. And I'm on the Nuvaring, so my TOM never comes until about two days after I remove the Ring to allow my TOM to come. This month it came earlier (while I still had the ring in). I don't think I'm gaining the weight back (weighed this morning at 180.2) it just feels like I'm... overstuffed! I am so dreading tomorrow morning. Does anyone know how to get rid of bloating? Drinking more water and what else?

    Wow@ Mapgirl...you look awesome.

    As to the question about TOM, I just began my cycle yesterday....first time since beginning PHEN again, and I KNEW it was definitely NOT time for me to began. Has anyone ever started their cycle EARLIER than they're supposed to due to PHEN??

    @Vanilla: I,too, feel extremely bloated and don't feel as if I'm losing...however, I don't STEP on a scale until I go for my monthly visit to the clinic, so I won't know if I'm losing or gaining until then...Su*ks for me though. I hope you're NOT really gaining and that it's just a "feeling" due to TOM.

    Do you see any difference?? Not much....

    Ok, I am about to get real personal and I am sorry. How are your Bowel Movements? Since starting the Phen I have realized new feelings with my body. Like when I am having trouble "going" I will feel heavy until I do. I really doubt that you have gained it all back. It also could be nerves. That feeling of...well am I really losing weight or is my mind playing tricks.

    You have been doing good and keep it up.

    Default Another bloating question

    I don't know if this is bloating or what. Normally I feel a little heavier a couple of days before TOM. But this month (first TOM on Phen) I've felt bloated for about two weeks (just about how long my period actually lasted ). The scale finally moved after being stuck at 183 for those two weeks. Now I'm 181 but feel heavier than I did when I started out at 193. I'm terrified that when I weigh myself tomorrow morning I'm going to be back at (or over) 193. That's not possible, right? Is it normal for me to feel so much heavier? I was saying on here a few days ago how it seems I'm only losing weight in the stomach area. It seems like my stomach is bigger than it was before.
