So, I'm don't normally ask about menstrual things, but I was curious to know if anyone else has the problem of their BG's getting all whacky right before they start?

I tend to run high right before I'm going to get it. It's nothing drastic, just a few notches higher than normal..

And I was also wondering if anyone has ever noticed a color change in the discharge? (I'm sorry, I don't want to make this too graphic..)

I've noticed a slight elevation in mine as well. As far as color change is concerned, if you mean brighter than usual, then yes to that too.

Any form of stress can increase BGs. For anyone PMSing or in pain with cramps, it would be up. Same is possibly also true around the time of ovulation when the follicle ruptures.

My sugar levels (which are extremely off due to my latest laziness) always goes up around that time of the month and I heard when I was first diagnosed that it was normal…

I was not diagnosed with Diabetes before I entered a very early menopause. I often had low BG episodes during that lovely time of month.

I'm sorry, I wish I could help but I went through menopause a long time before I was diagnosed with diabetes. I can say that everyone is different. I was late to get my period, and went through menopause early. I barley even new when it was my time of month. My sister was totally opposite of me. So I can only suggest you check with ( your doctor and your gyn ).

I don't have a GYN. I should really go to one, though. I'm 25 and have never been… Thanks for the reply!

I realize this is months after the fact but I hope that you have found a GYN by now. There are so many things going on with our bodies, without D being a factor, that you absolutely need to be seeing one.

Yes!! It would be a good idea to see one. Ask lots of questions when you go. And don't let them get out without answering all of them. And don't worry about sounding like a dummy. Thats what they get the big bucks for. Some times female problems cause and effect other problems. Tell them about everything.
