UUGGHHH....the mighty menstrual cycle and all the issues it brings.
Ladies, if you experience weight increases around/during your period, how long before you return to normal?
Can the weight increase hang around throughout your period? Even until a couple days after?

Yeah, it happens to most women. The body is storing up water in preparation for the period to start.
It's totally normal. Nothing to worry about.

Yep I usually weigh 4-5 lbs. more. I asked the internet at some point when I was watching my weight carefully, and that was within the typical range people replied. It stays until about a day or two after the period.

It just happened to me and I was starting to wonder exactly why/how. The body is fascinating...
