I have not had my period in 5 months and all my blood work is normal what can I do?

My last period was June 6th (about 5 months ago from today). I used to have irregular cycles (35-60 days) but never has my cycle lasted this long. I went to multiple doctors and have been tested for hormonal imbalances and have had an ultrasound - everything was normal. I even tried 5 days of Provera to induce a period and nothing happened. I recently have been taking 800mg of Vitex (chasteberry) pills for about 13 days and still no period. I don't know what to do anymore to get my cycle back. All the doctors want me to go on the birth control pill but I'm highly against it because I believe this is what messed my cycles up in the first place. I also want to try to conceive around January. Does anyone have similar experiences of this and what did they do to get a normal cycle? I eat very healthy and exercise 2-3x a week. My BMI is 20 and my body fat is 17%. I've lost about 2 lbs over the last few months and have been stressed from school but I've been trying to de stress my life and eat very well and still no period..

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Unfortunately traditional medicine only offers birth control pills as a safe method for regulating periods when you do not have any other reproductive issues. Since you do not wish to take birth control pills, your next option is herbal remedies.
There are many herbs that will help induce a period such as: Pennyroyal, Angelica, Savin, Rue, and Tansy to name a few. However, I do not recommend that you try herbal remedies on your own because they can be very potent and even poisonous if not taken correctly. In order to begin using herbs to increase your fertility you will need to consult a specialist.
