Thanks for writing in.
Lemon detox diet is not only flushing out the toxins from body, but it also flushes out electrolytes which are necessary for your body.
At the same time body is undergoing starvation though for small period of 14 days. Any starvation or extra weight gain over short period of time is likely to cause menstrual disturbances. Disturbances could be frequent menstruation or delayed periods.

I would recommend you to get urine pregnancy test done to be on safer side. I hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubt please revert back.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
