I was wondering if any of the women out there have noticed a change to their monthly cycles because of extended bike trips? We have been on the road since September 2006 and in that time I find my periods have gone from being within
the normal 28-35 day range to more of a 40-50 day range. I am not stressed and have not had any extreme weight loss, although I have slimmed down a few pounds because of all the cycling (I had a few to lose before we left!). Because we are on the road in foreign countries it is hard for me to seek medical advice like I would do if we were at home. I am going to try and have it checked out in the next big city, but any feedback on similiar experiences would really be
Perhaps a sidebar to this question is how you seek medical advice when you are on a long trip and often don't speak the language? Obviously if it is an emergency you go to the hospital, but if you just want a checkup...? I thought in the next big city perhaps I would start with the tourist bureau or the 5-star hotels and ask for any doctors that accept foreign patients on a pay-per-visit basis.
