I have been vegan for more than 10 years now and as I transition to a healthier diet, my menstrual cycle has become lighter and the actual menstruation has happened less frequently. I have visited forums and I have also read books claiming that menstruation is not a necessary part of ovulation. In fact certain health experts refer to it as hemorrhaging and claim that women following wholistic practices do not have this issue. I wrote about it here: Is Your Menstruation Healthy? Probably Not...
Have you noticed any changes since transitioning?
This is true. Menstruation is not a necessary part of ovulation. Ovulation can happen without bleeding.
My cramps are a lot lighter after 6 months on a vegan diet, and they were very bad before. I definitely feel a change.
Wow, I thought I had replied to you. Thank you so much for your response, Nina:) Glad to know that you are reaping the health rewards of discipline.
You look really fit by the way ;)
My menstruation became more regular since I become a 95% vegan (the other 5% from processed food containing dairy which I am working on cutting them out). Besides, the pain is almost nonexistent.
Yes, the pain is one thing that motivated me on my healing journey; although, I never had menstrual pain. Best wishes, Sharon...
