    Thank you The Real Amy! Yes, I agree with you, I dont think its my weight that is the problem. I went low carb while on the pill. I am wondering if that might be the cause. Yes, I am seeing a RE. They want to bring out the big guns and start doing injectibles, etc. I want to give my body to bring back my period. I do eat a fat heavy, low carb diet. Thanks for your input!

    Hi Saisrice,
    Are you in the LA area? I would love to talk to you about your experience. About a year ago I got off the pill and haven’t had an experience since. I am 32 and my husband and I would like to start trying. Ive had every test under the sun and have done everything to bring it back from dozens of supplements, acupuncture, Paleo eating, no exercise, adding in lots of fats, etc. I have never had an eating disorder, yet I always have been conscious of what I ate. Ive always been relatively thin and no problem with my period prior to being on the pill. However, I am starting to wonder if this whole feeding process might be worth a shot. I scared to gain weight, I am pretty happy where I am and have already gained about 5 poinds. On my 5’1 frame, its a lot. But, reading some of these stories and especially yours is encouraging since at this point, I do not want to have to do any type of fertility treatment to get pregnant. A healthy and natural pregnancy is definetely what I want. My only thing is that I really don’t do well eating grains. When I eat them I get asthma and feel really awful. I know they mention high carbs. Just curious what kind of carbs other than grains I might try eating. Ive started incorporating sweet potatoes and fruit into my diet (which I rarely ate before). Congrats on your pregnancy BTW!
