    Default Desperate for Advice

    26 Years Old

    Diagnosed with PCOS at age 12 - AF for 15 days every month

    Went of pill age 14 and AF four days regular every month

    Implanon inserted December 2009

    Implanon Removed December 2011 after 2 years - No AF while on implanon

    Its now mid April and still no AF - Been to the doctors and she said try to loose a little weight I am 20kgs over (85kg) ideal weight (65kg) - She also stated it would be hard to loose with the PCOS and gave me tablets to take at night to help speed up my insulin (I dont have any form of diabetes or anything)

    I just want to get AF back and TTC properly.

    Please help..... What have you experienced? Am I the only person experiencing this?

    Hi kjs,

    I saw on your post that you said you had pcos. I'm just wondering if this could be to blame for lack of AF? I've never had an implanon, so I don't know how that affects your cycle. When you got it inserted did they mention anything about how long it may be to get AF back once it is removed?

    I have pcos too & for me my body just doesn't ovulate reguraly on my own. I have gone 12 months with no AF before, so me its a matter of getting clomid from ob/gyn to make my body ovulate.

    I'd see if I could get a referal & see an ob/gyn. I had been to my GP in the past for lack of AF & they weren't concerned about it. It was only when I requested a referal that I've started fertility treatments, which I need to get that BFP. Its very frustrating that my body won't ovulate naturally!!

    Good luck!!

    The GP said could take up to 6 months to get AF back. I have never had an issue with getting AF before always every month on schedule ever since I was regulated by the pill at age 14.

    Thanks for the reply I think it may be time to see a Gyno

    Yeah, its so frustrating waiting for AF to come back I'd get a referal for a ob/gyn, at least they specialise in the area & get it on track for you I had tried every natural way to ovulate/try & bring on AF but nothing worked for me unfortunately. I only wished that I had booked into see my ob/gyn sooner as it was a long wait to get an appt
