Default Crazy periods on LC?

Hello all! 31 yr old here, been LCing since April 23rd. Down 16 lbs!

My cycles have always been long or irregular, and I've never officially been diagnosed with PCOS, but I do think I had a touch of it. I've had cystic acne, oily skin, and the long cycles.

My last period came the earliest I've ever had one, 29 days, giving me a 28 day cycle! This is awesome since we are TTC.

This cycle, I am on day 35 and I feel like crap. I took a test this morning, so I know I'm not pregnant. I had a two day migraine on Monday and Tuesday, which usually means my period will be here the next day. My ovulation can get delayed when I am stressed. However the only thing I can think of that may have stressed me out is a poison ivy reaction that has had me itching all the time. Thank goodness it's almost gone!

Have any of you ladies had your cycles go wonky when you started to LC? I really would like to be healthy and get pregnant soon. I am very strict with my eating, I haven't had any fruit for a couple months at least. I supplement with folic acid, magnesium, potassium and get a decent amount of Vitamin D.
