Low body weight can certainly prevent you from getting your period.  If you are not comfortable with your current course of treatment, you should certainly seek advice from another physician.  I know it might be hard to think about gaining weight right before your wedding, but it is an option that might solve your problem.

I agree with professorbee. Low body weight can definately be a factor that prevents you from getting your period. I suggest that you find another doctor, and maybe try to gain some weight.

I would see a new dr. if I were you… I would want someone who was trying to figure out the underlying cause, not just fix the symptom.

At 5’4″ and 115, you’re thin, but still in the healthy zone… I don’t think it would be drastic enough to stop your period altogether.

I agree with others to try and see another doctor.

I would look for another doctor.  That isn’t normal and you don’t want to just be taking a pill to protect your bones.  I would rather find out the cause so your body produces its own estrogen.

I would say it is because you lost 10 pounds, you may not want to here this but your body probably works best at 125 pounds. I would wait till after your wedding and if nothing works try gaining some weight and see qhat happens. be careful taking to many diff types of pills you may confuse your body more.

Did your endocrin test your prolactin levels? I had this SAME THING happen and it took them like a year to figure out it was a small prolactinoma. Now am on meds for that and my body is (finally) regulating itself again.  Just something to keep watch for – and definitely push your doctor on this, don’t let them just assume things will normalize when you go off the pill.
