I was wondering if anyone else has experienced a much lighter period while being paleo?
I have been paleo for about 6 months and most days I practice intermittent fasting. My period lasts about 4 days and I can get away with just using a liner. I'm not sure if my exercise regimen has anything to do with it, but I do HITT 2x, the Sprint 8 protocol and some yoga once a week. Also, I'm not underweight; 5'5, 150 lbs, and about 20% body fat. I'm not pregnant and have been on the Nuva ring for about a year.

I also experience a lighter flow. No more cramping! The flow is not tiny, but it's regular now. :D I used to have heavy flow. But I don't know about just using a liner. You don't have to use a pad? I run through those quick; not as quick as before, but I still have to use pads.
If it is a concerning matter, consider the following: Are you eating enough red meat? Are you sleeping enough? This is a real toughie for me. Are you sleeping around 10? Sleeping around 11/12 wasn't great for me.
