See below: You had an unusual menstrual cycle. However, unusual menstrual cycles don't necessarily mean that there's anything wrong physically.

Can weight loss and exercise affect your periods? My period keeps starting and stopping? I have lost 23lbs in 65 days and work out 3-5x/wk.

Maybe just the exercise is putting your body into a new balance. ...Read more
