This past month, I finally developed a regular (M-F) vitamin habit, and I daily take chewable 1500 IU D3, 1000 mcg B12/2mg B6/800 mcg Folic Acid sublingually, and one Trader Joe's High Potency Chewable Multivitamin
. I'm on day 3 of my period and have been bleeding about 1.5-1.75 times as much as I normally do, but my normally horrendous cramps are nowhere to be found (hooray!!!!).
I'm of course really excited about the cramping issue, but have some questions:
1) Is the increased bleeding okay, or something I should check with my doctor about? I've worked in healthcare and am familiar with guidelines for excessive bleeding--I'm not bleeding an unsafe amount, just more than normal.
2) What might be causing the increased bleeding? Research seems to indicate that the cramps alleviation is likely due to the Vitamin D, which makes me feel silly for not taking it years ago. Could the D be related to the bleeding as well?
