I had HA and strangely enough I was at my highest weight and I wasnt exercising when I had it so it never made sense to me. My bmi was 21 and when I came off the pill I had 2 weird periods then they went away for months. I did 3 rounds of iui with clomid and injectables and conceived twins. My period came back after their birth and I conceived naturally less than a year after they were born. (Strangely my bmi was actually only 20 when I conceived naturally). Some people are successful gaining weight and others it doesnt seem to help for some reason. I still wonder if anxiety played a role for me. If your husband’s sperm is fine you may have luck getting pregnant with injectable meds to make you ovulate. I’m sorry you are going through this!!

I had HA and never was able to get my period back. I gained weight and cut back on exercise, but my body was very sensitive I guess. We did 3 IUIs and 3 IVF cycles before getting pregnant. Not the easiest journey, but I am staring at my beautiful 8-week-old son! I would suggest adding in acupuncture and therapy to try to reduce stress as well. Good luck!!

There is a book called “No Period Now What?” That came out last year…you can buy it on amazon! I emailed the author when I had HA and she was so supportive. Her blog is called No Period No Baby. It might help!
