    Hey, you best bet would to see a doctor to get a medication to start your bleeding (provera its called i think?) and got some blood tests to track ovulation.

    This exact thing happened to me. I went to the Dr - she said it could take a year for my body to sort itself out

    So I went to a naturopath. He gave me a heap of chinese herbs to take. Within 3 weeks my period came. Kept taking the herbs and my cycles regulated straight away. Four cycles in I conceived DS.

    My advice would be see your Dr and see what they say. I can't recommend the naturopath option enough if the Dr isn't helpful. All the best

    Hi I'm in a similar situation but stopped pull in September and nothing...the advice I've had from others on here is to go see doctor and be insistent.
    Also I'm taking chaste tree, it might help too

    Out of interest, what herbs were you taking? I am taking vitex (agnus castus) but would be interested to know what else might help bring on AF. I am trying to bring my prolactin levels down which were raised by a medication I was taking. Thanks!
