    Hello!
    So, before women have their period, they always talk about feeling bloated and craving sugary/salty foods. Just before my period though, I don't feel bloated at all and I just crave food. I'll just eat gross amounts of food without ever getting full for the few days leading up to my period. I'm a healthy weight but I'm worried that I'll start gaining weight because of this every month and the amount of food I consume each time is getting bigger. However, when I weigh myself, I still weight the same. I was just wondering if anyone had these same symptoms/could explain why I get these symptoms and could possibly give me tips on how to curb the cravings? Thank you 😊

    Have you thought about going on the pill? This can help even out your hormones and reduce PMS symptoms so sort out the problem for you. I can't explain why you get the symptoms from a medical point of view but they're not uncommon I don't think. I guess try and eat more healthy stuff rather than just chocolate or whatever to try and fill yourself up (not saying it has to be all this ), make sure you're getting plenty of iron and things too. The pill could honestly be your best option though so have a look into that.
