Hi everyone, I'm pretty new here so forgive me for the long-winded post. I'm 29 years old (30 in April) and I've been married for almost 5 years. Last May we decided I would stop taking birth control and we would TTC. After stopping the pill my period decided to stop too. I went back to gyno in December and she put me on Provera for 10 days with 100mg of Clomid to follow. I did not ovulate. I am concerned on a couple of levels--WHY did my period stop? I was normal before the pill (I was on it for 8ish years). My doctor said it could be because of my weight (I recently lost over 100lbs, but am at a completely normal weight of 140lbs at 5ft 7), and that I may have to gain 30lbs for my period to come back! I do not want to do that as that will make me OVERweight. I don't know whether to sit around and wait for my period to come back or go to another doctor for a second opinion. Any suggestions? I did not like clomid AT ALL. I was irritable, hot flashes and gained a couple of lbs on top of horrible stomach cramps. Also--the gyno did test my hormone levels and I did not ovulate and my thyroid levels are normal. Again, sorry for the long post! Thanks girls.View Thread
