Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Nothing is really going in - it sounds like you are ovulating. If you haven't been having unprotected, then your period should arrive in the next week or so.I don't know why you are more hungry that usual. At various times in our cycles we can crave different foods - this could be what's going on.

Best,

Susan
