Customer Question

My period was fine for the past 3 months. Now is missing. 4 month ago I got out of birth control in a quest to see if PCOS is really that bad . I had a period with no problem now in the 4th month is missing. I was taking some supplements in the first few
months with chast berry tree and inositol. And then I stopped. Could that be that those help so much? I guess I should start them again? Is there anything else I could take so that I get periods? And no, I am not pregnant. Did test and is negative. I expected
that to be negative anyhow.

Hi there,

I am online and will be happy to answer your questions.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

can you please tell me your age?

this is very normal and usual to not have any periods for few months following use of oral contraceptive pills for any reason.

Expert:  Internist replied 2 years ago.

the reason of you not getting periods could be

  • due to supression of hypothalamico pituitary adenal axis( which commonly happens after using oral contaceptive pills
  • or it could be contirubted by decreased ovarian reserve.
  • you should check LH , FSH levels, and ultrasound of ovaries.
  • also please colnsult your ob/gyn for need of starting again oral contraceptive pills. or for hormone induction therapy if you want to be pregnant.
