I have been going through amenorrhea for a couple of years now. I never had a regular period since I started having periods at the age of 17, so at first I didn't think anything of it. But when I started being concerned about it (after not having my period for about a year) they told me that my prolactin levels were too high and that I had prolactinoma and a mass around my pituitary gland. The endocrinologist put me on bromocriptine which got rid of the mass and lowered my prolactin levels and my period returned, but only when I kept on the medicine. This medicine made me sick and I stopped taking it and started looking for a natural alternative. I found Maca and started on that, I had a VERY heavy period that month and after that nothing again, so I switched to Vitex, which did nothing for me. I just started seeing a obgyn and she ran a bunch of blood tests and mri's and whatnot. They all came back "normal". So there should be nothing wrong right? Wrong, I am still not having my period. The obgyn put me on the generic for provera for 10 days and now I am on my period (day 1).
My question is, if my hormones and everything are "normal" why is the generic provera helping me have my period and is there anything that I can take/do to help my period come on its own?
