So I haven't had a period for about 18months. Over the past 2-3 years my cycle was going longer (say 45 days) eventually they stopped apart from a 4 month spell in 2009.
Test show low levels of LH and oestrogen. Everything else thyroid, adrenals seem in normal levels. I had an MRI on my pituitary and it didn't show up anything out of the ordinary.
The doc started me on the pill but it made me feel terrible so I stopped it (Jan - mid feb)
Overall I feel tired, moodiness (even depressed) and I am prone to the odd sugar binge. I started paleo in Jan and it has helped a little but still prone to sugar binges(damn it!)
So my hormones are out of whack but I just want to get them sorted without resorting to the pill, maybe it's my only option? I have been dabbling with acupuncture so perhaps that will help. Plus I think I need to dial my carbs down and go vlc or even zc to see if that helps.
** update saw doc for hormones blood tests and there are signs of them stirring! He was surprised!! Signs that my eostrodial(?) levels are coming back up, after levels so low last year. Not quite there yet but optimistic that periods could be coming. This is after some acupuncture sessions so you bet I will be glad to continue them to see if I can get a break through. Really chuffed, though doc was going to insist I go on the pill again. Fingers crossed this is going to resolve with acupuncture and good paleo living. :) Whaaaa, just feel so frustrated!
