CFS & amenorrhea
Hi, I've just wondered if any of you have had their periods stop? I went on the contraceptive pill at 19 as I'd always had irregular, painful periods. I'd go for months without having them. I started getting ill that same year, starting with IBS, rashes, etc. This year I've been diagnosed with CFS & I came off the pill around 6 months ago. I've still had no period, have been having awful outbreaks of spots on my forehead and feeling really unwell (headaches, muscle aches, joint aches, nausea, dry eyes, etc). Also, I have the darkest circles under my eyes and I never had these when I was younger so they aren't hereditary.
I'm really worried as I'm only 23. I've been reading that something is wrong if your periods haven't returned after 6 months off the pill. Does this sound like hormonal issues? I want to get referred to a specialist but I feel so much worse after going to see my doctor as they are always so unsympathetic. I feel like I have no support at all.
