I had an eating disorder when I was a teen, and had previously had scattered periods. After being anorexic, my period stopped altogether, and has never really come back, despite recovery and weight gain. I have tried many things over the years - hormones, homeopathy, accupuncture, Don Quai, etc., but still I don't get my period. I know I could take birth control but I was told that that isn't a "real period" and I really dislike the way that I feel on most birth control. I just want to do what my body needs from me and I would prefer to do it in a "natural" and "healthy" way (whatever that means!) - can anyone offer some advice?
