I've actually had the opposite experience. After struggling for a year to get pregnant, I went raw and was pregnant within a month.
If you are drastically underweight you may stop getting your period. I have also read that a lot of women who go raw stop getting their periods as well and that it's not neccessarily a bad thing. I would hit up some of the raw food sites out there, I know there's info, I'm just at work and can't track them down now.

I'm not a doctor by any means. However I have read a ton on raw food. Some of the material I have read suggests that our periods are a way of detoxing. So depending on how long you have been raw, the cleaner your body is, the less need for this detoxing period. I have read that alot of women who are mostly raw will see a decrease in their period, both the severity and the # of days. Those raw foodists who are hard core 100% raw alot of times will just stop having a period all together. They are not bleeding but they are still fertile and able to reproduce.Personally, I can't wait to NOT have a period. I'm just sick of those pesky little buggers!

But you should see a doctor. It may be something else. Who knows?

I have been about 75% raw since February. I used to have very painful and heavy periods. My March menses there was no pain and my period was substantially lighter and shorter (3 days instead of 6). This month I had 2 days of a mucus like discharge and two days of a very light period. I was wondering the same. Is this "normal"? Fertility is not an issue for me now, but at 32 I'll need to be deciding if I want to be fertile soon. Any other women out there who have been raw and have had their menses change? Did fertility become and issue?

yes... the period is just a detox, the sicker the woman... the worse her period is. That is why a woman can get pregnant, without having her first period.
