No Periods

No Periods

Anyone else NEVER get a period?

I only do when I take Provera.

I have already tried Metformin, Vitex, weight loss, exercise, clean eating. Still have never had a cycle on my own.

I just started taking inositol, so I'll give that a shot for a few months to see if that helps at all. Any other ideas? Is there anything you have been able to do to naturally get a period?

I had periods that were very irregular to start since I was 12. At 16 I went to my first gynecologist because I was having severe pain in my ovaries. I was told to monitor and note when it happened on a calendar to track them. Also to note when and if I had a period. Unfortunately I wasn’t diagnosed for another 8 years with PCOS. At that time I had gained 100 lbs, began showing more symptoms and it was a physicians assistant who tan test to find it, not even my doctor.

Anyhow, in 2002 I was diagnosed and have since then been on Metformin, progesterone for thickened uterus, 2 biopsies, spironolactone, clomid, which allowed me to have my second child and actually have periods. 2008 I had a period for 6 months(spotty) and had to have an endometrial ablation. Since then I have had 5 periods, 3 of which came after having the ablation, and 2 back surgeries. Then 2 random ones... it is very common for women with PCOS to have the absence of periods, it usually means no ovulation is happening and then what will happen, the eggs that are suppose to mature and move through the ovaries during ovulation, don’t happen, rather they mature get old and then become cystic and when then burst we have pain. It is a horrible cycle for us. I recommend seeking a doctor with PCOS experience or at least one who isn’t afraid to research PCOS for more positive avenues for you health. I at 42, am still working in that one too!

Good luck!

I use to have periods every 32-46 days, it was awful never really knowing when I was or if I was going to have a period. So being fed up and told by my doctor that she didn't want me on birth control due to another medical complication, I did a ton of research on vitamins and essential oils. My periods are now much more regular usually 28-32 days, on occasion I will have a period 40 + plus days out (like twice a year). This is what I take; AM: evening primrose oil, chasteberry, milk thistle, fenugreek. Afternoon: chromium picolinate, dong quai. Evening: maca root. It sounds like a lot and to be honest I take more than this but for other issues. I don't think it matters when you take any of these but I found this has worked for me, to regulate my period. I hope this helps :) I should also mention, I had to take this regimen for about 2 or 3 months before things became regular.

Wow. I have never heard of anyone else with this issue even my doctor said she hadn't either. I've never had a period that wasn't induced by birth control. Same here, I've tried metaformin, topical gels, hormones etc... I'm 27 and now have severe ovarian cysts and I am on bed rest due to the pain. Im so depressed and i don't feel like a woman. Last time I checked woman don't grow mustaches. :( Let me know how your doing!!!!

I usually don't get a period unless I take something to induce it like provera been on metformin for at least three years now and still don't get a period on my own. I work out faithfully and eat well but still no period so I understand that.
