Have you seen a doctor? It could be PCOS, which causes missed periods, weight gain, etc.

Mrs.McG2013:  then you really need to see a new one. 9 months without a period when you’re TTC isn’t “no big deal”. If your dr can’t take you seriously, you need to find another one.

I have really irregular periods and stress is a big factor. When I’m late I get stressed which makes me even more stressed as we aren’t TTC until after the wedding. I would try to get a second opinion to make sure nothing else is going on. Good luck and hugs.

I agree with AnonymousCupcake that 9 months is a long time for post pill amenorrhea – it might be something that you should consider looking into, especially with weight gain! Having a knowledgeable health professional assisting you in realizing your dreams is a real asset when ttc. Best of luck to you!

I am actually a doctor. Get your GP to refer you to a specialist gynaecologist for further assessment – 9 months without a period plus large amounts of weight gain (which FYI is not caused by your uterine lining building up) sounds highly suspicious for PCOS. Some basic blood tests and an ultrasound might be a good idea to help you sort out what’s going on and work out what your next step is if you do want to fall pregnant. Big hugs – it sounds like you’re having a bit of a rough time, and good luck!

Mrs.McG2013:  I am so sorry you are going through this.  TTC can be a very difficult road to travel. 

I am not sure of your current diet, but, have you looked into a paleo or the whole 30.  I have read quite a few stories about peoples periods coming back when they went off sugar/carbs and even more stories about people getting pregnant.  It definitely helps with PCOS and a number of other fertility issues.  Good luck with everything!

AnonymousCupcake:  I had a similar situation- I am 10 months with only two periods after stopping the pill. I was diagnosed with PCOS through both blood tests and an ultrasound. I have a followup with my gyn scheduled which will likely result in a referral to a fertility specialist. 

 

I think you need a new doctor. the entire process that I’ve gone through (3 visits so far) has transpired within 5 weeks and they are extremely responsive and sensitive to my questions. I would recommend going to a larger practice that is an ob/gyn and not just a gyn.

Hey Mrs.McG2013:  I am going through almost the exact situation. I have blood work booked for August 6th, and shortly after an ultra sound. 

I have tried so many different things to promote a healty period and now falling short of ideas. Hoping I get soem positive answers witht he ultrasound and blood work. It is so fustrating. Hubby and I just got married and the “when are you having kids” question is really starting to get old. Wishing you all he luck, stay strong!!
