hey girls.

hate to sound like a snot but im on day three of my period and i havent had any cramps/sore breasts/emotional outbursts AT ALL.

its sort of creeping me out since ive had horrible period cramps ever since i started menstruating, and never had a period in which i didnt double fist meds into my face and damn my uterus.

the only thing i can think of is that after 14 yrs of being a vegetarian, i finally became a vegan 6 months ago.. and im guessing the dairy played a big part in my cramps? does this make sense? anyone?

i know this is sort of a blessing and i shouldnt be complaining.. but im scared it might be something worse. please help!!! im scared!

It COULD be that. I've had cramp-free periods, and then I'll randomly get one that's surprisingly painful (I've been vegan for roughly a year). I think it also depends on the quality of the foods you're eating, if you're eating healthily. Also, avoiding spicy foods seems to help.

ive been eating the same foods, sans dairy of course. and i still basically go through a bottle of tabasco at every meal. nothing, cept for the dairy, has changed really..

i think the reason im sort of freaking out is because ive never had a cramp free period.

have you increased your soy intake as you've decreased your dairy? sometimes this combination (increasing soy, particularly, regardless of the dairy issue) tends to decrease some PMS symptoms.

I only don't have cramps if I've been particularly good about excercising the week prior.

Are you eating a lot of raw foods? I've heard that eating many raw foods or mostly raw can really help, but I have been blessed to be cramp-free on my periods more often then not, so I don't know.
