Customer Question
I'm 51 and have not...
I'm 51 and have not had a period in 10 months. I have been off of the Pill for a year. I am really struggling to lose weight, I workout 5 days a week (Orange Theory Fitness) and I eat a plant based diet. I was considering going back on the pill to see if that would help with the weight lose, Is this safe?
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: I'm not in any pain, I have hot flashes but they are not severe. I haven't had a period in 10 months
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have Thalasimia minor but that has never been an issue with my health other than low iron

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
