A 31-year-old member asked:
Can't stop eating during my period, how to cope with it? what about the pill that gives you only 3 or 4 periods a year?

Exercise,Possibly: Exercise may help with some of the food cravings during your period. If you can definitely associate the eating with just your period, then suppressing or limiting how often your periods occur may be beneficial, so this type of oral contraceptive may help.
