: Did he really imply that menstruation is an "illness"??? If my doctor did that, I would share some choice words, and then find a new doctor. What century is he from anyway? Personally, I think that is beyond inexcuseable.

Lee Ann, I thought he implied that during menstruation our bodies were under a physical stress the same as the physical stress our bodies experience during an "illness". And stress, physical or otherwise, raises blood sugar levels. So, have you noticed your levels rise?
