Sorry, I know I could have posted this on Health & Healing but I thought I would get more responses here.

This is a question for ovulating/menstruating females. But if you are a guy who is always hungry and gets zits too, then you can join in.

I would really like to know if there are others out there who get so drop-dead starving when they ovulate and menstruate???? It's like I have a little monster inside me that is screaming for food, and no amount of food makes the hunger go away. Then I get these volcanic pimple eruptions around my chin and forehead area. They look like mini-volcanoes. As of right now my volcanic zits have gone into remission but I know they will be back in a couple weeks.

I really, really, really, wanna know!!! Am I the only one??????

Ummmm, sorry, it looks like you're the only one! Of course it's normal!! Although the opposite happens to me...not really hungry at those times...I think my hormones are out of whack!!!

hey hon... don't worry... i am "uhm" a bit older too, and i still suffer from breakouts when the hormones rage. at this stage though i am drinking flax seed oil (two teaspoons in some yogurt) and it seems to be helping a lot.

(still have no solution for the murderous raging yet but oh well.. i am nice enough during the rest of the month lol!!)

Hey Nephthys, good to see you again! I shouted for you in your forum.

Yeah I do too - a week before. Then a couple of days before I'm due I get really thirsty and drink all that extra water in! Lovely

Mistymoon - flaxseed sounds cool, been meaning to take that for my hair actually, will give it a go. I've found virgin evening primrose oil to be pretty good too. I like this stuff; http://www.equazen.com/default.aspx?pid=30

OMIGAWD!!!!

Yes, I will be on my period next week..... and the week before,(NOW) I am ravenous!
I just said to my hubby last night I couldn't eat enough!!!
Luckily I don't have a lot of junk food around..... mostly good for you stuff... lotsa' yogurt and berries. And soup. I love soup.
But If chocolate is near me, I simply do not resist. No way.. If it is there, It is in my mouth.
My chinny chin chin is where I am targetted for those large painful period pimples.
I always get at least one. The week before menses.
I am sure there is a medical reason..
I know when I was studying skincare, it was mentioned that the chin was the 'hormone' zone. Any fluctuations and it will show up there.
And storing minerals and nutrients for the 'blood loss'.. even though it is not a lot, and it is only the uterine lining shed, I do feel physically drained during my period....

I have been using the Flax Seed Oil (Total EFA) for years now. I use 1 - 2 T. per day.

I get really exhausted the days right after my Period ends. & a couple days during ovulation.

I also get thirsty right before it starts. (although I always drink a lot of H20 every day).

That's interesting....Is it weird that I forget to eat sometimes?
I get really hungry sometimes, and sometimes I barely eat anything, but I never noticed a pattern. Not very observant about those things though.
