Hey nurse here, need help!! I went on Birth control when i was 19 to regulate my periods. So i am now 24 and just went off them. I have not gotten my period since the end of Jan. I had my TSH, T4,(were normal)LH and FSH drawn and it showed that i was midcycle but that was like three weeks ago. I have been getting cramps on and off for weeks now. when i was 17 i had an abd. US which showed nothing. I am worried that i will never be normal. any thoughts??
I went on BCP's when I was 16 for the same reason....would get like 3-4 periods a year and they would last like 12 days and be terrible. I stayed on BCP's for a few years (three?) then went off them. My cycles were still irregular and sporadic My husband and I were trying for a baby, although not charting or anything, just not "not trying". I ended up getting pregnant April 3, 2003 (according to pg calendars) and delivered 12/31/03. Funny thing was, I had not had a period since January 28, so they had a hard time estimating my due date~it was actually 12/25/03.
I breastfed my daughter for 11 months (quit around Thanksgiving 04) and didn't get a period at all while nursing until this January (just over two months after quitting breastfeeding, my daughter was 13 months old). SInce that time, I have had a period every month (not on BCP's or any hormones at all). Granted, they haven't been clockwork (one was a 45 day cycle, 40 days, and 21 days!) but I have at least been getting them.
So, to answer your question, maybe having a baby did regulate my cycles so although they aren't exactly the same, at least I'm getting one every month so far.
Don't know if a baby is an option for you right now though~hope that helps~
