Default question starvation mode

I have heard that if you eat under 1200 calories/ day (female), your body will go into starvation mode and mess up your weight loss efforts. I am getting full quicker... I think because I'm not feeling really well. How many days under 1200 is typically 'allowed' before your body begins to go into starvation mode? I'm not real low... I think was 995 or something last night and I may end up reaching 1200 tonight if I have a bed-time snack. It's REALLY unusual for me to not feel hungry or want to have seconds.... I couldn't think about eating seconds tonight if someone forced me.
