I just started taking 2000 units of vitamin D daily per Doctor's Orders. But my period this month is the heaviest I think its ever been and I use a cup, so I noticed the texture of it was really stringy, more clumps than blood. My period was pretty pleasant before I started taking supplements and I'm feeling kind of stressed out about it right now. Could it be because of the vitamin d? Is it just a coincidence?

Also, I was taking iron supplements for a while because I'm vegan and doctors, family and friends were all telling me I needed to. Turns out my iron is just fine, but when I was taking the supplements my periods would be approximately 45 days apart compared to my usual 28-30. Why does this happen?

Also, does anybody have any experience with any other vitamins changing their period? This stuff

ALSO, I definitely have PMDD and wondered if chasteberry tea actually helps? Or St Johns wort? I'm hesitant to take hormonal birth control when my period is typically a fun guy to have around. It's kind of a "if it ain't broke don't fix it" thing for me. I would like to get rid of the depression without messing with my hormones if possible at all.
