Default Had a period naturally, first time in years

I haves had PCOS for about 6 years and during that whole time I have NEVER been able to have a period without the use of medication. I have gone 82 days at the longest before I decided to call the doctor to have her start me on provera. I have recently lost 20 pounds and today, I started my period NATURALLY!! This is such a big deal to me because I have become convinced that I can do anything without medication. I am hoping to get pregnant soon after my wedding and this gives me so much more hope I can do it naturally! What do you ladies think? Would you be excited as I am over this?

Most definitely! I was diagnosed with PCOS in September 2010 after not having a period for over 200 days! Since then I've been TTC, and all my periods have been induced by Provera or a result of a cycle with ovulation induction. I've lost about 14 lbs and I think I'm about to start my period naturally (I'm cramping and spotting) for the first time since I can remember! Granted this has been a 50 something day cycle, but I literally go months and months and months without a period sometimes. So I definitely think it's something to be excited over!!

CONGRATS!

My period went back to it's natural cycle once I started losing weight. Since I lost about 80 pounds, my period have been regular and I noticed that the moment I gain some pounds, the period becomes irregular again. Now I don't have any science to back this up but it's just how my body is.

But yep, pcos can be dealt naturally. In fact the less drugs, the better. Think natural, organic, fuss free.

I would be soooo excited! Congrats to you!

I am 28 and have only had 1 "normal" period naturally in my life, other than that, just some spotting once a year or so.

I'm currently on birth control to get my periods and am working hard to lose more weight... Then I'd like to see if I can do it on my own.

I hope you keep getting them!!

Wow!!! A serious yay for you! The longest I ever went was 9 months without my period (ya, I know thats super bad but I kinda liked not getting it) After that I smartened up and used progesterone.

I get mine every 2 months now, and I am hoping and praying with another 20 or 30lbs lost, I could become regular....which I have NEVER been in my life!

Congrats again.

I was overweight/obese, mostly obese, my whole life (borderline morbidly obese). From the time I got my period it had never been regular, once every few months on different days of the month. Loser 80.5 lbs, wham, like clockwork every month in the same days.

Yes because it's exciting news!! You must be delighted! Mine re-appeared when I lost around 10% of my weight and although my cycle is still pretty long I still get a kick when it rolls around and everything goes like clockwork

YAY! Congratulations!

When I lose weight, my period became regularly too. Now, I'm discovering that if I am eating too many carbs, the days between periods get extended. If I am eating low carb, I get shorter times. Weird, huh?

Question Help

I just got my period for the first time in 9 months before that I had one forced period using provera. And before using the provera I didn't have a period for over a year and a half. So I am wondering song I just got it on my own does that mean that i have lost weight or something along those lines? I don't know what else would cause me to start my period after all this time

I'm just finishing my third month with a regular period. Other than 2011 when I was on BC, I haven't gotten my period more than once or twice a year in well over a decade. Now I'm medication free, regular, and I have my weight loss to thank.

Aw, I'm so happy for you! My cycle came back last October/November after I'd started losing some weight and though it is a bit irregular still it has showed up every month roughly since then. When my period arrived on its own I was so happy, I think I literally jumped right up in the bathroom and did this:
Your weight loss is paying off in so many ways, congratulations and enjoy

I was diagnosed with possible PCOS many years ago but it never caused me terrible symptoms other than no period naturally. About 7 years ago I started seeing a chiropractor and being adjusted 3 times a week. 3 months in I started a period naturally for the first time in over a decade!! I've been regular ever since and so happy! Try finding a good chiro near you to see if they can help you too!
