So I got tired of lugging around the baby weight. My pregnancy was not nice to me via the weight gain. I gained a hefty 80lbs. I was 124lbs when I got pregnant. So as of June 1st, I've been deiting and exercising. I've lost 22lbs in about 6 1/2 weeks. With that being said... I started June 1st, got my period, June 16th... I was due for my period on July 16th... Only the 16th, 17th, 18th came along and NO period! Took a pregnancy test yesterday - and it came back negative. The only thing I can think of is that the somewhat rapid weight loss has caused my period to disappear.

Has this happened to anyone???

Thanks, ladies !

I've been on a constant weight loss journey for years and it's has made my periods shorter and lighter when I am at a lower weight.

Yes, your period can stop during times of rapid weight loss, and if you get down too far, you can lose your period all together. That does NOT mean you aren't fertile, just that you aren't having regular periods because you aren't getting hormonal cues. If you are worried about it, see your doctor, and make sure to get regular, nourishing meals.

That has happened to me. I got sick and had a rapid weight loss of 12 lbs in 5 days. I was due for my period and it came 5 days earlier then normal. When your body goes through a change like that anything can happen. Good luck though!
