I know it feels like you need your period, but estrogen pills and injections are not necessarily going to return you to health. They will just mask the lack of estrogen in your body, which is a natural, normal result and a way your body is dealing with stress.
The cure is relaxation and nutrition, is all I'm saying. If estrogen helps you relax, so be it.
What are you doing to alleviate stress? Can you get a counselor just to verbally vomit your stress all over her? Yoga? Light exercise?
I have a high metabolism as well and so do my sisters and I am vegetarian so I eat a lot but it usually consists of not super fattening foods.
I totally understand! Maybe forcing it is not a good idea.
I took provera because the midwife told me to...
I guess I was thinking maybe they would have an "answer"...
I read that some women need to take provera two times because the first time
did work or they had a thick lining because of the missed periods. I don't know. I guess I was hoping there was an easy answer. But you are right. Relaxing and eating right and trying to unwind and it will come back.
I am not sure what they will say tomorrow... estrogen, relax, provera....
Either way I am going to take your advice and gain a few pounds and RELAX!
As far a de-stressing I haven't been doing much up until the last week or two.
My husband is enforcing Sundays off work.
We work Tuesday - Sunday
and we used to work Noon until Midnight everyday but now until 9pm. So that has helped.
I try to relax on my day off but usually end up cleaning because we don't get home until 9pm
and then eat and go to bed. There is hardly any time to clean, do dishes...
I have been thinking about Yoga too. I think I will start doing that on my day off...
I have been talking a lot more lately about all that is going on with my husband so I think that will help a lot in the long run as well. I am also starting a journal.
Overall it sounds like you are totally right and I can't tell you how much better you have made me feel!
Thank you for taking the time to talk to me!
It really has helped!
