This all started around 2 years ago when I got married... Or course the next step is lets have a baby... But it all began because I had problems having a period for over a year I did not have one before I went to the Dr. ... They did lots of test and did an internal ultrasound said that I had really tiny ovaries at the end of about a month of all this they pretty much said they didn't know why I wasn't having a menstrual cycle and set me up with a year's worth of birth control... So I took the pill for a year and at the end of every month I had a " Menstrual Cycle " after my prescription ran out I stopped taking them for 4 months to see if anything would happen... Nothing did... I did not have a Menstrual Cycle... I went back to the Dr. Got back on the pill a month ago.... But now I have started really researching the use of the pill for amhneora ... And I have come to realize that this is not a great solution.. You do not have a real menstrual cycle on the pill... I have heard that it can take you longer to get pregnant after you stop taking the pill... I always feel so embarrassed when I go to the doctors office So before I go back if any one else has dealt with such things like this and what is your opinion about using birth control for amneorha? And can clomid be used? From what Ive read it seems like it... But there's so much information out there it's so confusing !

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Birth control pills or other types of hormonal medications are a common medical treatment for Amenorrhea (the absence of menstrual period). Clomid - Clomiphene citrate (CC) is used to relieve symptoms of PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and is prescribed to help trigger ovulation.

Outside of birth control pills and Clomiphene citrate there is ERT (Estrogen Replacement Therapy) which is used to balance hormone levels and restart menstrual cycles.

With regards to it taking longer to get pregnant after taking birth control pills, there is no solid evidence to support that. Remember, every woman's hormonal make up different and her body will respond differently when hormones become imbalanced.

There are some surgical procedures for amenorrhea, but they are not common and are not recommended for some conditions.

Discuss with your doctor, why birth control pills were selected as a treatment for you and find out if you are a candidate for any of the other options.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
