Brief Answer:
Weight loss would help

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns about delayed periods.

Delayed periods in your case are due to increased weight. Losing weight is best way to bring back periods.

To my patients I give progesterone hormone like meprate 10 mg per day for 5 days which will bring periods. You can try the same.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

thank for answering doctor. Can the progesterone cause blood clots? Also how long can I go without one like 4 months or 5 total to try to lose the weight I gained ? also are there any alternatives like an herb like dong quai ?

No clot related problems

Hi,

Don't worry about clots as progesterone is unlikely to cause them.

You can lose weight in about 6 months if you follow strict diet and exercise.
