Ok a bit awkward to share but here it goes...
I have had very low hormones since for ever, and have long term amenorrhea ( not menstruated) since I was about 17. But... today it happened! amenorrhea no more! I am so happy :))

I have been taking sam-e (800 mg daily) for quite some time and I felt it was restoring my hormones. In addition I have been taking nitazoxanide for its antiviral effects.
:victory:

Oh I talked to loads of em. Very unhelpful. They couldnt find what was wrong so suggested... it was because I was depressed or stressed or whatever. I did not try hormone therapy although they did try to induce my cycle with progesteron (failed) and birth control. But I chose to stop the bc many years ago because I did not like the idea of taking hormones, and because there were no benefits for taking it health wise (latest studies show it doesnt help bone density)

Way cool, thanks for clearing that up for me. And congratulations!!!!! (big grins)

We all need tee shirts that say "Support Doctors are Dunces" a program designed to get doctors the help they need to open up their minds and hearts. (grins)

Yes it was the sam-e. I took it for several months, 6 or so, and felt my hormones restore slowly. Now my amenorrhea is cured. I still can not believe it.

Congrats. :)

I kind of understand how amazing it feels. About 5 mths ago.. had a period for the very first time which was of 28 days menstrational cycle... after having completely screwed up cycle all my life cause my body struggles to ovulate (PCOS). To my amazement.. I ended up getting two months of normal cycle.. then thou Ive gone back to my quite normal for me, highly abnormal one.

In my case thou I still dont know why I suddenly went normal for the first time in my life (at 41 years old).

It must of felt even more amazing for you seeing you were entirely missing.
