hCG And Your Menstrual Cycle
For Women ONLY!

For women who go on the hCG diet and have their period, they often wonder what to do and why they have to stop. This post will clearly answer that question based on Dr. Simeons manuscript so there won't be any confusion as to the rules you should follow when you go on the hCG diet and your period comes.
Dr. Simeons states you should stop the hCG drops or injections during your cycle but continue the consuming the 500 calorie hCG diet foods. When your cycle is over you resume taking your hCG drops and continue with the 500 calorie diet.
Dr. Simeons also states to start the hCG diet after the last day of your period.
Hormones Are The Answer
Hormones control the start and finish of your menstrual cycle. The Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and the Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Both hormones are produced by the pituitary gland in the brain to mature the ovaries and later manage your menstrual cycle. During your cycle the Luteinizing Hormone is produced in abundance over powering the effects of hCG while on the diet.
The hCG won't have any positive effect on you while the Luteinizing Hormone is present. You still follow the hCG diet meal plan as hCG is still present in your system and it will help lessen some of the weight gain your hormones may have already caused you by retaining water.
42 Day Protocol
When you are on the 42 Day Protocol you still have to take 1 day off a week in addition to stopping the hCG drops when your period comes. Remember stopping oral hCG or hCG injections is to prevent hCG immunity and has nothing to do with your cycle.
If you no longer have your period and are on the hCG diet, then these rules to stop the oral hCG or hCG injections during your menstrual cycle do not apply to you and you are free to continue the hCG diet without interruption, unless you are on the 42 Day Protocol.
