no menstrual cycle

by Robyn
(western Australia)

My daughter was on the Contraceptive pill for over 15 years. She is now 36 and is trying for a family. She has been off the pill for nearly two years without experiencing a period. Her estrogen and progesterone are extremely low. She also has osteoporosis.

The fertility clinic she attended is suggesting quite a few tests but I was wondering if there is something that can be done that is not so intrusive, eg progesterone?

Any help would be appreciated.

No menstrual cycle

Hi Robyn

15 years is a long time to be on BCP, all drug based contraceptives have a potential to cause harm. It can take a long time for the cycle to return or become regular. Whilst each hormone level is important, it is vital that the ratio between progesterone and estrogen is known. You haven't given her results, but perhaps you can work that ratio out yourself by reading the Hormone Testing page. Being on BCP, plus all the estrogen mimics that we have in our environment today would certainly mean that she is suffering from Estrogen Dominance. She may have PCOS and if her Prolactin level is high it can cause major problems. She could also have thyroid problems.

Progesterone therapy has helped so many women who battle as your daughter is battling. May I suggest that you try a good organic progesterone cream such as Natpro. It can take 2-6 months for the body to adjust. She should use between 100-200mg every day until her cycle returns to normal. Once it does, she must use the cream by following her cycle. It would be a good idea to have some tests done too so that you know what she is dealing with.

Her age suggests Peri-Menopause which starts at 35 when progesterone levels start to drop. All the more reason to use progesterone cream.

Is your daughter taking Vitamin D3, if so what is her level? Vitamin D3 helps to build bones and I suspect this could be the reason for her Osteoporosis if her level is low. Co-factors are vital ie Magnesium and Vitamin K2 with NO soy. These two co-factors also help to build bones.

Please read the following pages, it's a lot to take in but I am sure that you will benefit by reading them.
