Question
hello, I've talked to a few doctors and got some answers. I am wondering if I could ask my question to someone else. I have been off birth control for over a year and a half but still haven't gotten my period back. Also, I was wondering about some things I don't understand in my medical history regarding an abortion.

Hi,

Thank you for writing to XXXXXXX

Not getting periods for more than a year i.e medically known as Secondary Amenorrhoea needs to be evaluated. Few common causes are pregnancy related, thyroid abnormalities, stress is a big factor, anorexia nervous(eating disorders), prolactin hormone problem and Poly cystic ovarian disease i.e poly cystic ovarian disease. Hence I suggest you to consult a Gynecologist, get yourself clinically evaluated.


I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups. If you like my answer kindly rate my answer and write a review as well.

Thank you,
Wish you good health.
Regards,
Dr Arif
