So i found a relatively good doctor to communicate with out of TX. Long way from me but whatever. I cant afford doctors visits and hormonal/blood work ups so this is what i got. Anyways I talked to him about my past. FWIW, i suffered anorexia and have gained weight in recovery and restored weight and been messin around with paleo/primal trying to find what makes me feel best since. my hobby is the brain, love studying it and obviously nutrition. so yes, before its said, i know eggs and all the yum cod liver oil and sat fat is good for fertility. same with starch, been eating plenty of food. its not anything i ever took out of my diet(besides when actively anorexic..) but the point remains i have gone 7 years without a period. so anyways, the doc told me this:
"I can tell you that amenorrhea can be caused by suppression of pituitary function from excessive cortisol or psychological stress. Basically, the pituitary shuts down some of it's output, and in the case of amenorrhea, shuts down output to the gonads. To really find out you'd need a complete functional neurological and functional medicine work up."
guessing this is about where i stand... anyone got some information, advice, ideas? i need help with sleeping, im up all night- sweaty mess around 3(cortisol? low blood sugar?). i workout once a week, other days walk in the sun/stretch/meditate. been reading primal wisdom, ray peat and rosedale recently and everything is getting confused because each seems to 'make sense'
