21 ‘Health’ Foods You Should Never Eat
Thank you for making great products, I hope you will stay in business and keep making them forever!!! This is why I was so disappointed when I read this article. However, by the time many of us get desperate enough to visit the ER, we are pretty dehydrated. Went back to the Dr. I will certainly get these vitamins now.

Why Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt is so much better for your health than processed table salt

Wanting to be pregnant and not having your period is awful! I was wondering if anyone has any advice for my situation: I got off the pill after 5-ish years on it this February 1st. My husband and I started TTC then. I just started taking Fertile Aid so hopefully that will help something! And I finally was able to get an appointment with a GN at the end of next month. Any advice on what I can do until then??

Hi, what pill were you taking? I have not had anymore since either. Had all the tests done bloods, hsg, scan , partners been checked and he is all fine. Especially when you want something really bad. Have you tried anything to help?

I am after ideas also. I am in a very similar situation to yours. I am wondering if you would be willing to share an update? Or has the fertility aid helped? I recently came off the pill after nearly 5 years. I went to GP who has rang test and said I have low levels of estrogen and I have now been referred for a scan at the hospital, they have mentioned possible PCOS.

I am so concerned and now find myself being so stressed the exact opposite of what I want has anyone had a similar experience? And how concerned should I be that my estrogen levels are low? Can they rise on their own? It has made such a difference for me during this frustrating time of TTC! Hi there, I was on the pill for 11 years, I came off the pill 2 months ago.

It is a scary feeling. Is there risk of pregnancy if not getting periods? Is there a possibility of getting pregnant in the future? Will I be able to have children one day? I exercise times a week. Thanks for posting this, its been very helpful. I was on birth control for 7 years and I am now I have been married for 3 years.

I stopped taking it in February and have had one 2 day period since then. I am actively Ttc. I have had slight spotting every day but never a period. It gives me a little hope that at least my ovaries are not broken. I have been tracking ovulation also, so far i am on week 3 and no ovulation. My MD tested my hormones and all are within normal limits, so she suggested I see an infertility specialist. I am not to that point yet.

I always get my period after I go to accupuncture and some specialize in fertility: I have been having issues with my period since around February. Its really weird as my body seems to try to start and i spot and have to wear a panty liner for weeks at a time but never fully starts. Any suggestions as I am wanting to get pregnant.

Im 35 yrs old and stopped birth control early Feb. Im worried my lining will get thick n give me cancer. Hello everyone, After 6 years trying to conceive I finally got pregnant 3 weeks after I contacted Priest Iyare from his website http: God will bless you and your good work more and more. I am recommending your program to all my friends.

You give me HOPE! All my friends have teenagers and sum r grandparents, but I am 35 and have none but want 3 children still. I will certainly get these vitamins now. So my situation is a little different. I got of my pills maybe three months ago. I was on it for over a year and gained some weight. So I got off and the last two months it was off on the day it would come but not too far from usual expected time. I had the same issue. I am 26 and have never been more than a week late.

I waited it and sure thing, period started this morning. I am not one to promote home remedies but took ginger tea the past two days to clear up some constipation and only read afterwards that it could be linked to menstrual flow.

I find it purely coincidential. Please do not attempt to take anything without knowing the precautions. Just relax and let your body run its course. I hv missed my periods from d last 3 months…also i m not pregnant…n after d dr. Advise still my peroids are not coming…now what should i do..??? I have never felt so not alone about this situation until I saw all these comments of other women. I thought that I was the only one. I too went off the pill in November and had excessive bleeding to start off with, which they corrected with a week of progesterone, and then lost all sight of my period.

So I guess we will see!!! Hopefully period comes and then the official baby making process begins!!!!! Did you get your period?? Your story sounds just like mine. I would love to know how the infertility acupuncture worked for you!! I did start taking the Zinc, Magnesium and B6 on top of the acupuncture and I have my period. I never thought I would be so happy to get it! I definitely suggest giving that a shot too! I have been on contraceptives for over 10 years and decided to stop since I think I need to prepare my body for motherhood, I stopped the injection last year Sep, until now I have no periods….

I totally think the supplements works. Still I want my heavy flow to be sure my periods are back. But today is elevent day of my period and still going on like the 2nd day flow. How should I stop it? Did your period stopped automatically? What did you do? Also suggested going back on BC for a month.

What happened after that for you?? I came off the pill in January after being on the pill dianette for 10 years.

I suffered from acne as a teen and found that Dianette was the only thing that kept it under control. This is the reason I stayed on it for so long! I eat well, exercise, take all the recommended vitamins etc. Have tried to stimulate ovulation by taking herbs such as berberine, vitex agnus castus and drinking raspberry leaf tea with no success so far.

Am having a session of acupuncture soon. Has anyone tried this or had any success? Exact same story for me as well! I just tried acupunture yesterday such a weird feeling, but fun! I just want to get my cycle up and running so I can try and conceive naturally. I would still recommend acupuncture thought as I know people it has worked for.

Did you start clomid without having a period? Have you had any success on it? Did it help you ovulate? Where you ovulating before hand? My doctor has finally given it to me which I have started today however I have not had a period. Sorry for so many questions. As as update — Steph, yes I tried clomid without having a period following the advice of my obstetrician. I went 10 months post pill without a period, then had 2 cycles of clomid before undergoing IVF. Staying on Dianette for a decade was sadly the worst decision I could have made, and I paid the price physically, emotionally and financially!

I take birth control pills my husband went I leave this pill now 5 days I left pills tell me how many times after my periods come back. Thanks so much for this atricle!! I stopped taking the pill in January, after 8 years, but there were no signs of period since.

Doctor sent me to various tests, after the results came back normal, doctor suggested taking the pill again for a couple of month.. Then I found this article, and instead started taking magnesium, zink and B6, and just after 2 weeks got my period back!! Baby project can now begin This gives me so much hope!! I have a similar situation to many of you.. I have been on the pill for 10 years, and got off of it in January of this year.

I have so much hope reading that you all have had success through different vitamins and supplements. I have felt lost and alone, but now I feel uplifted with the thought that I, too, might be cured through a few extra vitamins each morning And perhaps acupuncture! Hi I am 19 years old and took birth control pills for a year to control my acne.

Hey can you please tell me which zinc magnesium and vitamins are you taking? I am taking pregnacare. I am having the ditto scene actually. Should I start out taking over the counter medications?

Or am I overreacting and need to give it more time? Is it too soon to want to go see my Dr. I have a similar story, was on pill for 11 years for bc reasons only, decided after reading a few negitave things about putting hormones in me to come off.

I stopped 2 months ago no periods yet. I would like to see if anyone comes back with helpful comments as I feel same, I dont like periods pain in the ass as they are but I want them. I stopped the pill in April and waited 45 days… yesterday I got my period and it is heavy! I have been reading and researching.. I am a nurse in labor and delivery so I asked many co-workers about this issue as well. It seems 3 months is absolutely normal to wait after pooling many women.

I looked into fertilaid.. Also, I am with all of you, I was never told the pill would mess up my hormones afterwards, more young women need to be educated. Thank you for this feed, it helped me a lot. I went on to control my acne and have been terrified to come off until January this year because am TTC. Feel really strongly about this. Am glad you have had a period. I just hope mine hurries up soon so I can start TTC properly. I would not have stayed on pill for 11 years if I had known it would do this.

I stopped birth control back in January and have had my period twice in February and then it never came back? But i am just wondering what you would recommend to induce a period to make it come faster! Ive already made healthier lifestyle changes in the past month and am steady keeping to it, but i would like to know what can i do to induce my period to come back again!?

I put on birth control when I was pretty young due to a large ovarian cyst. I am a 26 years old i have been on depo for about three years my next date was on December 30 i did not go coz i want to have a baby please help me i want to get pregnant because i go married Now my husband want a baby please help me i really need a baby. My doc told me it can take up to six months before your fertility levels get back on track after stopping the depo shots for some even longer than that.

Depo does reduce your fertility for quite some time. I was told sometimes your cycle can take up to 18 months to return after stopping the depo. I stopped taking the injection back in October of no sign of a cycle yet.. Hope you are able to start your family soon? When I first went off birth control my family who has never run into problems with it was positive for my future in trying to get pregnant.

Month after month went by and no period and no bfp big fat positive it was heart breaking. I finally went to the doctor after month 3. Found out I had a hypothyroidism. After about 4 more months I also found out I had pcos. It can be hard for people to get their periods and sometimes to get pregnant. I started reading some advice on here after about 9 months. One was how a young lady started taking an over the counter medication called fertilaid.

I was skeptical but I was willing to try almost anything.. So I bought it. The medication is a form of natural herbs and vitamins. On the site it tells how it can help with people looking to get there period back. It says take for at least 3 months. Last November I finally received my period again. And possibly order the medication. It might help you like it helped me. Can you get this product fertilaid at any pharmacy how would i go about getting it?

I was wondering whether you had a brand you could recommend when it comes to these vitamins? Is there some product that would be a good combination of all these or is it better to take them separately?

Magnesium, for example, seems to be sold in a zillion different forms so it gets confusing. Can prenatals be good for amenorrhea? But that may just be me.. I took the pill for 5 years and decided to stop for health reasons. It had been 4 months without my period but I started taking evening primrose oil capsules and eating maca powder and I swear to god, only 2 days later my period began!

These two products are safe and herbal, you can google them, read up and I highly recommend buying from a health store. She is a naturopathic doctor and it is such a great read.

I am taking steps to get my period back after birth control and after reading that book I feel confident that I can if I follow the instructions listed. I had been on the pill for about 13 years, and quit since my husband and I wanted to start trying right after we got married. Unfortunately, after a few months my period never came and I was getting frustrated as I had baby fever in a major way. I took this article to heart and immediately ordered zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6, and got some yam pills as well.

After just two weeks of being on this combination, my period is back!! I am beyond excited. I hope I ovulate normally and we will conceive soon…huge thank you and good luck to the rest of the ladies on this feed. I highly suggest taking these natural remedies, it works! Of course any girl would be happy but I recently decided to go off it to have children.

I was on it for 4 months and nothing. I went off my BC 3 weeks ago, no period. My partner and I have been having unprotected sex, we want to start a family. I had spotting a few days after sex but just tested negative. I also just started taking prenatal vitamins to replace the vitamins I need. Well my period finally came back today. In the past week, I noticed extreme PMS symptoms and I mean extreme — headaches, moodiness, my face looks like a pizza, sensitive breasts, sensitive skin, even sensitive teeth.

In the event that the vitamins are what did it, I want to share the brands with you:. Taken with breakfast and dinner. And of course this is complete with daily exercise and a healthy diet. I do believe these pills helped, since they have everything the body needs for a healthy cycle.

My last period was in July, just before I had to go off the pill. Never had this issue after going off the last two times when we were trying for our kids.

Progesterone is essential in getting and staying pregnant. It can become compromised if there is too much stress in your life because your body will produce more cortisol over progesterone. Acne, hair lose, depression, insomnia and constipation. Anyone experienced constipation and what do I do? This is rather late but I am just finding this site and your comment is one I related to. I think I am compounding my issues since I also am trying to go vegetarian this last few weeks, so my eating habits are changed dramatically too.

I have just been trying to eat a fiber one bar daily and also take some dulcolax to keep things moving. I hope you are feeling better! I ended up going to the health shop and got some flaxseed oil and having a tablespoon mixed in my oats in the morning.

It works it makes your stool softer and easier to pass! I also got some senna tea to help kick start things but beware only use one teabag and steep for a few minutes.

I used 2 before I went to bed and holy shit literally! My stomach was nice and flat afterwards! Will only use it every once in a while as your bowel can become dependant on it.

Would it be the same as getting it in a b-complex, if the amount is the same? I think you recommend 50mg. Just an update from my post on Aug 31, Aunt Flo is back after over a year of no natural period!! Just wanted to share what worked for me in case it could help anyone else get their period back. I know how stressful it can be, but thankfully I found something that worked for me.

I am 37 years old over weight and had fibroid tumors on my ovaries. I have not had my period over in 4 months. It explains a lot about how your hormones get out of whack, how to use the natural progesterone to get your period back, and much more. It also talks about how hormone imbalance can cause fibroids, and many women have used the natural progesterone cream not only to get there periods back, but it has also helped to shrink their fibroids. I myself along with several friends have used natural progesterone with great success.

Last Aunt Flo that started on July 16th and lasted 5 days. My hubby and I did have unprotected sex several times in this time. Spotting, occasional cramp, backache today, terrible dizziness the other night. I also was in birth-control for so many years and stop sometimes to take breaks and get back on it. Last time i stop was for 6 months and got periods but got a cyst, and the doctor told me to get back on the birth-control.

I got back for a year now and was trying to get pregnant so i got out in March, and got periods for April, May and then for June was a day cycle and since June no period.

I have cramps most of the time, or feel like electricity thru my breast. I got back to eating very healthy no meat mostly greens, grains, and fruits and taking a multivitamin. My moods are fine, and hair as i was reading other ladies having issues. I gain some weight as well. I got acupuncture after not getting a period for almost 3 months and took B-complex and lots of faith and prayer. I got my cycle regular this month and i will continue doing acupunture till the baby comes: Hi I took BC pills for 4 years.

We both did not have a period for 4 months and we both had a very serious hair loss problem after quitting the pills…. I just wanted to follow up on my story- I have been off the pill for a couple years now and my period is pretty normal, if I have protected sex or get stressed or travel I end up having a very late period. I believe this is normal. Good luck to all. I was on birth control since about 17 mostly to prevent pregnancy and 31 now.

I I went off of it this past November and have only kind of gotten my period last month. Then again more waiting and nothing came until finally July 4th I had some spotting for a few days and what could have been red flow even though it was very little. I did start doing acupuncture so that May have helped—so some of you may want to try it. Anyone had experience with this? I was diagnosed with amenorrhea after going off of birth control In April.

I have since lost a few pounds in the last month. I started Vitex 9 days ago so maybe it has kick started everything. Such a roller coaster ride! I took ocp for two years and 3 months. Started in fen and stopped two months back. I had 1 period on 20th june and no period uptill now.. I was on birth control since I was 16 I am now I got off of birth control when I was 20 since I got married January 2 When I went off the pill I bleed the next day thought that was my period.

We are ready for a family. But before I was on birth control I was irraguler but I never missed a month. They prescribed me hormone pills for 10,days and after that I started bleeding.

Its frustrating cuz I have done blood work and pee test and everything is normal. Any one know what I should do?? I was on BC for 16 years. My period started delaying and finally disappeared when i was Until my dr put me on BC and sono showed cysts in my ovaries. Long story short, i ve been looking for a cure for 16 years, and spending thousands. I stopped pills for many times. Every time no period and my hair started thinning and i could literally get bald.

She lowered my prolactin and put me off the BC. But since then im shedding horribly. U see through my scalp. But she says all my hormones look fine and this is the side effect of stopping BC. May take up to a year. Check ur prolactin since u ve been irregular forever. Dont take chemical hormones under any condition or u will be slaved to them like me forever.

I did not have any side effects. They are prescribing me some med that will help me ovulate. I went off of birth control June and my period stopped my only symptom as well.

My doctor prescribed Provera in Feb. I had a period Feb and March then nothing. She tried to put me back on the Provera telling me that I could just take that each month. I have started using natural progesterone cream using it for 3 weeks, then off 1…. Hopefully, that will help my body get back on a regular cycle. I know that many, many women use this to conceive, but there are risks. I have a friend who has had issues with fertility and also was born with a heart defect and her mother was on Provera and Clomid when she was conceived.

She has researched and is convinced that is the reason for her issues. Also, she had 2 early term miscarriages and is now pregnant with her 3rd child 22 wks , and the only difference between these 3 pregnancies is that she started using the natural progesterone cream. I am hoping to begin ttc next year, so fingers crossed that the natural progesterone helps me get my period back. It explains why your body may be out of whack, how to use the natural progesterone to get your period back, and much more.

My biggest suggestion is do your research! I tried everything and finally I found this shampoo , Plantur 39 for hair over forty. Eat more fat and safe carbs. My daughter was on the pill for 3 years, she gained quite a few pounds. She went off the pill and started to exercise excessively and diet. Her diet was good, I thought. High in fruits and vegetables, low in fat and selected protein.

She was always hungry. She lost a lot of weight but plateaued, and got frustrated. In that time she lost her period for more than a year. She was put on progesterone pills to help regain her period, but to no avail. She finally went to a nutritionist who told her she wasnt eating enough calories or enough fat and protein and that is what had caused her weight loss to cease, and perhaps her period.

She ruined her metabolism. The nutritionist told her it could take a year of eating enough and properly to regain her metabolism. It has been hard for her. She has put back on some of her weight, but it did cause her to regain her period. Adding fat coconut oil , safe carbs and more protein has allowed her body to function as it should. Hi there, My situation is sort of similar to your daughters. She is a lacrosse player and exercises extensively daily.

It has been very difficult for her mentally and emotionally to have to regain weight that she tried so hard to lose. Our doctor told us that period loss through excessive exercise is a myth, its diet related, mostly due to lack of sufficient fat.

She feels that it is all worth it now because she has her period back. I have a similar problem like your daughter had. I am underweight plus I am a vegan. Is there some natural way that I can get my period back without gaining weight or eating animal products? I only want natural stuff. I did every possible test and my hormones and sugar is good.

Do you know any good natural ways to gain my period back? Did you lose weight by dieting, is that why you are tiny. My daughter lost a lot of weight by not eating enough. She ate a lot of vegetables and fruit and protein shakes.

She was also on the pill and had one or two periods after she stopped taking the pill. It was when she started drastically dieting that she lost her period. Try eating coconut oil, like a couple of tablespoons at day. It is a MCT and your body needs that kind of fat. Also add a small safe starch daily, like some white rice, a potato, sweet potato or some taro. Also if you eat gluten you should consider removing that from you diet and replace it with safe starches and coconut oil.

Good luck, and give yourself time, be good to your body with good food, enough sleep. Thank you for your reply. No actually I was born prematurely so I am skinny all of my life. Thanks for your advice. I actually eat almost everything you mentioned but I could add coconut oil again to my diet. I exercise hour and a half every day. I love my body and I want to stay fit and healthy.

So if you know any tricks please let me know. There is no quick little trick to get your period back. Your body needs the right fats and carbs to do its job. Unfortunately for some we live in a world where no fat and low carb eating is very common. The body is an amazing thing. Given the right tools it can heal itself. My daughter is seeing a nutritionist. She has to eat a certain amount of calories per day. You should consider tracking your calories to see where you stand.

This was interesting going through this thread. I went on the pill in order to regulate my periods. I came off in order to give my body a break and since coming off the pill Its been inconsistent. I was never regular previously but never missed any. This is such a hassle, I want that consistency and peace of mind to know my body is working properly. I have been on and off the pill for almost 20 years. I avoided the doctor, until I got morning sickness, chills, fainting spells every morning.

No, I was NOT pregnant. My husband finally took me in and my prolactin levels were hig and I had a very small brain tumor caused by high prolactin and the pituitary gland. I had to go on Cabergoline to lower the prolactin. It worked, but got put back on the pill because Cabergoline makes you really fertile. Did not want that. Went back off the pill when things leveled out and same thing happened…ugh. I will say I had success with zinc and Vitex herbal Chaste tree supplement!

Trying it again and will look into adding B6! Thank you for the article! Several years ago there seemed to be NO info linking the pill to no periods and high prolactin.

I took birth control pills for 20 years. This is everything I did to successfully get my period back:. Warm lemon water first thing in the morning Fermented foods Himalayan Salt on food Small amounts of raw honey No soy products No processed foods No sugar Cooked things mostly in coconut oil, and also grass-fed butter Keep blood sugar stable — not too much fruit or natural sweetener at one time — some protein at every meal Adequate amounts of fats and carbohydrates with each meal Adequate soluble fiber A lot of water — I drank mostly a high pH water 9.

This is a fabulous list! A great one for everyday standard health. But after going off the Pill one year ago after having been on it for 10 years , I still have an irregular period.

Despite doing nearly everything on this list. I kind of think everyone and their body is just different! Despite everything we do to try and control it. How long will it take my hormones to balance- estimate? Every girl is different.

My mistake I think was quitting the pill cold turkey. Make note of everything in this article on this site. My estrogen levels are pretty much non-existent right now. I came off the pill in October not as I put in my original comment and my body still has not corrected itself.

I still do not have a period. Thank you everyone for sharing such valuable information. I have tried both natural and western medicine. Hopefully something I share can help someone on here! Prior to being on birth control pills for 11 years straight, my periods were irregular because I was so active. I started off with Tricyclin and then I was switched to Tricyclin low. I stopped taking BC pills back in October , and I still have not got my period back. I was put on progesterone pills which did nothing except make me gain weight, sweat like a beast and eat like one too, I was then put on estrogen pills which did nothing but made me gain weight, and my MRI and ultrasound both came out good.

My estrogen levels and sex drive are almost non-existent. Doctors say I am not premenopausal because nothing is working downstairs for me.

The end conclusion from the western medicine side of things was that if I want my period back I should go back on birth control. I was sent off with a 3 month supply of some newer brand of BC pills called LoLo. Some of the non-medicinal ingredients of this LoLo are Blue no. From the natural side of things, I have done sunflower and pumpkin seed cycling in connection with the moon phase, taken rabbit ovaries homeopathics , tried acupuncture, and cut back on exercise.

My one naturopath doctor recommended the following: Nothing I have listed has worked for me, the acupuncture helped me sleep a bit better but that unfortunately did not last. My next step is to follow what was written in this article and up my zinc, magnesium, and B vitamins.

Hopefully something I have said will help someone, because nothing has helped me yet. I hate that you are dealing with this. I know how frustrating it is. I stopped the pill May After being on the pill for over 10 years, I think it takes your body a long time to recover from those artificial hormones and remember how to make the correct ones itself.

I tried a lot of things and was told over and over again it was stress etc. It took until February before I got an actual cycle back and actually ended up getting pregnant on my first regular cycle.

It was quite the blessing as we were set to start fertility treatments in June as a result of the whole issue. While the whole thing is frustrating, sometimes in time it will work itself out. Sending good vibes your way and hoping your frustration comes to an end soon.

I appreciate the good vibes. I am very happy to hear that you got your cycle back and were able to get pregnant so quickly, this all must have been such a relief! So unless something changes, this October will be 2 years without a period. Your comment made me smile, so I thank you very much! You ladies are so comforting! I am 29 years old and was on the birth control pill for over 10 years and stopped abruptly in November due to getting blood clots.

Listening to all your stories makes me feel a lot better! I stopped the pill two years ago hoping to get pregnant. They put me on estrogen and progesterone…which caused me to feel like a crazy person. The periods started again! I was told the pill masks the symptoms of Premature ovarian failure and therefore the periods are basically pointless.

It was horrible to find this out after trying everything else under the sun to get my period started…and now having one but for no reason at all. We plan to adopt one day though! Pregnancy the only reason for people to have a late period. Usually people think in this way. But the fact is,There are various reasons. Overexercise, smoking, overweight, Alcohol, Stress, Irregular sleeping patterns etc are the reasons of missing periods. It is very frustrating for all of us as I can see. I was on the pill for 12 years and decided to come off the pill January no period since then 2,5 years pretty long right?

Well I did try everything, had like 2 ultrasounds, hormonal tests done all normal, tried natural remedies and also use supplements as Angus. This is very helpful but I do many of these things and still have not regained my period. I was only on a low dose pill for about three years and when I stopped taking it, I never once got my period. IT has been about two years now since my last period. My doctor insisted that I go back on the pill to ensure that I am getting enough estrogen to support my bones.

After going back and forth with her for several months I finally gave in and started the pill again. What else can I do to promote estrogen without being on the pill!? I eat a very clean diet and take a high quality pre-natal whole foods vitamin at the suggestion of my doctor. I am not trying to get pregnant. Recently did a hormone test and turns out I have prolactin. Prolactin is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland and its primary role is to help initiate and maintain breast milk production in pregnant and nursing women.

Well since I was diagnosed with a tumor in my Pitutary gland I been on medication for a month to help shrink it down non cancerous and also my hormones where sky rocket.. Now I can say my hormones are back to normal for my age and I started my period!!! And it last 4 days like a normal period. I know it may be scary to check if you might have a tumor but it works. Amanda, I suspect that I may have a tumor on my pituitary gland; how were they able to tell you that you had it?

Yes I went and had an mri done. Then was put on the medication to help shrink the Tumor. What do you think about these things Laura? Thank you so much. I was on birth control from age No processed foods, no sugar, everything organic, free range, grass fed, no antibiotics, no hormones Keep blood sugar stable — not too much fruit or sweetener at one time — some protein at every meal Eat adequate amounts of fats and carbohydrates Add more foods with soluble fiber to diet Drink a lot of water Get at least 7 hours of sleep at night, preferably 8 hours De-stress you life.

I am so glad I found this website! I have become so distraught every time I think about it. My Gyno had also told me that I could have trouble getting pregnant but I could be put on medicine to make me ovulate to become pregnant. I read that you could have it but not necessarily have the cysts which was why my test came up negative because there were no visible cysts. I just want to go off of birth control and ovulate and have regular periods on my own with no help from medicine!

I have been on BC for 8 years now and I am over it. I am hoping to ask my Gyno if it is possible that my body will regulate itself out if it is just used to relying on synthetic hormones to ovulate and not another reason for missed ovulation.

I am nervous because my last round of going off of BC resulted in 10 months of no period at all. Hope we all get our answers! The withdrawal bleeding is only there to make women more comfortable taking birth control—you can also skip the fourth week completely and move directly on to a new pack to eliminate periods altogether. The elimination of ovulation is how birth control works in the first place. Best of luck to you in getting your periods back.

I was so worried about being left infertile. I have been supplementing with magnesium, evening primrose oil, zinc and a complete B vitamin for 3 days and got my period this morning! Give these recommendations a go before despairing as you have nothing to lose xx. I am in the same situation and making myself miserable. I was completely unaware I would have issues no period, CD46, normal before birth control and have cried basically daily.

Just wandering how you dealt with this. I have been on birth control since I was 8. I am now 20 and my fiance and I would like to have a baby and we have been trying to get pregnant since june of last year. I have no idea what to do.

And we really want a baby what do I do? If you or anyone else wants to chat about this or just vent or discuss what each other is doing feel free to email me. I recently heard some people who have thyroid disease can have absent periods. If you already have had it tested you might want too. This can definitely be a factor…. I went off birth control in January, my last cycle was Jan 1. My fiance and I decided to start trying for a baby last January , so I finished up my pack of pills.

On top of the stress of my abnormal periods I have other issues causing me stress: Every month I get my hopes up thinking that I may be pregnant just to have them dashed. I have no idea what to do anymore. Has anyone else suffered anything similar… having periods right after coming off the pill to all of a sudden nothing?

So hopefully my problems will be solved then. Especially when all you want is a baby. I hope you find your answers. Also having that issue.. If it makes you guys feel any better, I stopped the pill May and had one period between then and now, but found out um pregnant without ever even getting back to a regular cycle. Everything is normal so far except they are having a Difficult time pin pointing my due date due to no cycle referenve. Hi ladies — curious how your doc appointments went?

I am in the exact same boat! Took the pill for 10 years, came off last July. My husband and I are trying to conceive, but my cycles are all over the board. First 40 days, then 45, then 50, and the last two cycles were 75! Not sure what to do! Would love to hear how you all are getting along. I cannot be anymore frustrated with this issue. I have been to different Drs. I was finally able to get my Dr.

They suspect an endocrine issue maybe…. I could not be any more frustrated. I was always regular. I went off and on in the last 13 years between relationships and to give my body a break bad idea, unless its for a few months and again, always went back to normal. Of course, now that i got off in order to get pregnant, nothing. A month went by, 2nd month…3rd month. I was in panic mode.

I was eating tofu for estrogen and parsley to get things going. I was going nuts. I saw a homeopath and started taking: Vitex — agnus castus — 3 pills on empty stomach 2. Took prenatal every other day, not to overdue my iron, since i had no cycle.

I highly recommend 2 and 3. Its all natural, been used to centuries, and I heard from numerous women this has helped them too. I was on Depo Provera for 4 years and Seasonal, no sugar pills for a period, for 2 years before. Therefore, I never had a period being on either of these birth controls.
