For a long time I’ve had issues with my periods. When I was 16 I went on the pill due to them being irregular and heavy. I regret this decision now and wish they’d investigated more.
I went from the pill to having the depo injection for around 3 years. However, I came off it as I wasn’t having any periods and it didn’t feel natural. I don’t really take tablets even for headaches etc I prefer the natural route. Four years after stopping all contraception and I’ve not had a regular period. At most I’ve had about 10 periods over this time.
Over the last 2 years I’ve been back and forth and had scans and they’ve found i have PCOS. I am overweight, I know that I don’t need them to tell me. I have been trying to lose weight but find it difficult and disheartening when everyone around me is successful.
My problem is, the doctors have said well if I’m not trying to get pregnant it doesn’t matter but when I want to come back and they’ll help. They said I’d have to lose weight and have a healthy a BMI first.
But why is it considered to be okay not to have periods etc and for no one to be worried. I just want to be normal, my body to work like others, I never ‘felt’ right. Just because I don’t want a baby now doesn’t mean they should leave it.
Anyone else feel like this? I know a lot of people on here will be discussing pregnancy and later in my life yes it will be a worry for me too but for now I’d like to feel normal.
