Mine has not changed at all. I am on the pill though so that probably regulates it more. I would think that if you are at a very low weight- that would more likely be the reason? Also it could be caused by the stress brought on by your diagnosis maybe. Sorry I can't be much help.

Mine can be irregular, sometimes a week early, sometimes a little late and the amount varies too, this month I was very heavy and it only lasted a couple of days and other months it seems to drag and last for over a week! I must admit it has been worse since I started on the steroids again.

Mine are very irregular... when I tried to go off the pill I lost it altogether, I suppose cause I'd lost so much weight. Also when I do get my period my crohn's gets alot worse.

Yeh if my weights low they would go irregular or disappear completely until I got my weight up a bit. After flares I've had them disappear for like 8 months at a time. Now I don't know as I got the implant as periods would always cause me agony.

When my output was high (think lots o' D)...I wouldn't have one or they were extremely short (kinda spotting for a day or so)...Also when my prednisone was up high, I wouldn't have much either...I know it's kinda freaky, cuz, I and you too, possibly, don't want to end up on that show "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant"... shocked

I just HAD to comment on this, i think it's hysterical - whenever anyone titles a thread "For the Ladies only", etc, it gets more page views than any other thread - you know it's the guys just DYING to see what we are writing about here. :)

LOL. that's so funny.. and true~!! LOL

Anyhow.. .My periods are very irregular, but I think mine are due to Peri Menopause since I'm almost 47 years old... And, when I do cycle, which is about every other month or so, my symptoms do get worse too.. Darn hormones can sure mess us up huh? UGH!!!!
