I don't have health insurance so my hands are kind of tied. I assume any answer I get will say to go to the doc, but ill just have to wait a few more months. Until then, this is a great way to get some sort of opinion on my issue.
I have 2 children, 5 years and 2 years old. During my C-section for my youngest, I had my tubes tied. After that, I breastfed for 14 months. During this time, I only got 2 menstral cycles. Since then, I have only had 3 more. These periods are not normal either. I bleed for about 2 to 3 weeks, but its so light that I don't have to use anything. Its just a light spotting everytime I wipe.
In addition to this, I cannot lose weight no matter how hard I try. I need to lose 50 lbs (I ate for 5 lol) and the only way I lose anything is by eating less than 1000 calories a day, and very minimal carbs. I also have to work out an hour a day, 5 days a week (usually eliptical, sometimes running outside). I've been very fit (6' and 150 lbs.) my whole life and I hate my new body (6' and 220 lbs.). I'm always tired
, my skin is worse than a teenager's, I can't estimate when ill get my period, and I feel like I'm going to be fat forever. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I have been assuming that my problems are mostly hormonal, so I recently went to planned parenthood to receive birth control. I lied and said that my periods are normal so that I wouldn't have to pay for a pap...unfortunatly it is out of my price range. I have not started taking it yet because I fear gaining even more weight.
Thanks and have a great day!
