    I was just wondering if anyone has harder time purging when you are starting to pms rather than if you aren’t? I tried to purge for the past couple days and have not been able to. I’m not sure if I just haven’t been eating or drinking enough to purge (I don’t feel all that full) or if pmsing...

But I've been forcing myself to maintain for a while now due to various reasons. I thought...

    I'm dealing with the worst problem. I never had this issue before in my life until the past year when I started taking birth control pills for endometriosis. All my PMS symptoms got quite a bit better except the new one that showed up. The week before my period, I get SO hungry. I don't mean a...
