Not likely...: Raw rice is not dangerous and should not have any effect on your menstrual cycle. Eating a large amount, may cause some abdominal pain or distention due to the large amount of water that rice can absorb. Also, raw rice is a food that someone with PICA may crave - you may wish to see your physician to ensure that you are not anemic or deficient in any nutrients that are leading to your habit. ...Read more

Rice gains weight.: Rice are carbohydrates. If you eat them and don't burn them through physical activity, they are stored as fat. You gain weight. If you exercise and eat a well balanced diet, there should be no significant weight gain.

You're fine: You probably heard about the guy who ate raw rice, drank water, had it swell in his stomach, and he exploded. It's just made up. I'm sorry. It will absorb water and perhaps make you uncomfortable, but you're not in danger. If this practice doesn't give you a stomach ache, enjoy it. ...Read more

A habit to break...: Raw rice won't harm your pregnancy unless it is contaminated with a germ that can harm your pregnancy. When rice is cooked, all the germs are killed and its the best way to eat rice when you are pregnant. You should work on breaking this habit prior to "trying" to get pregnant. Get help from a therapist if you can't do it on your own. Best wishes! ...Read more
