    Default Period hasn't returned after coming off the Pill

    I came off the pill in August 2016 after being on it for 10 years. I had my withdrawl bleed but have not had a period since..it's now been over 6 months. For the past few months I have been taking some natural medicines in the hopes it would regulate me - Dong Quai, Vitex, Magnesium, Evening Primrose, Vitamin C, Red Raspberry Leaf tea, Milk Thistle & Dandelion Tea. I've also had 3 sessions of acupuncture. Nothing really seems to be happening. I am wondering if anyone else's period took a long time to come back after stopping the pill & if any natural medicines worked for them...and how long they were on it before it started to work.

    Hi Maree, my period never recovered after being on the pill for 12 years. I came off it in Jan 2012 and my cycles were irregular and/or very long until I conceived my son in August 2014. My cycles were up to 45 days and so ovulation was sporadic. Have you tried a chinese medicine doctor? What does the acupuncturist say?

    Altogether i had about 7 treatments from the acupuncturist who thought that I may have had PCOS. I didn't feel the acupuncture treatments were working so have since seen a fertility specialist and after running some tests they've found i have Polycistic Ovaries (not the Syndrome) The specialist has put me on Provera to bring on my period and then Letrozole to hopefully make me ovulate. So fingers crossed this treatment ends well
