What if I get my period on the program?

As your body produces its own hCG during menstruation, you can stop taking the drops until your period ends.  Simply continue on with the eating plan and recommence the drops once your bleeding stops, taking note of the number of drop-free days.  Add these extra days to the end of your overall program.
