No Period After Birth Control Pills

I had no period after birth control pills. I went off birth control pills in July and did not get a period for 3 months. My OB/GYN ran a million tests, some very scary, and came up with nothing. She recommended that I try acupuncture to relax and help myself. I started seeing Amelia in October.

After just one appointment with Amelia, I got my period and then proceeded to have a 28 day cycle. My cycle and charting was certainly not perfect, but after just 3 cycles with Amelia, I'm pregnant! I am now almost 7 weeks, and although I am terribly nauseous, I feel great and am really excited.

The key for me was trying to be patient with my body. I had been on the pill for so many years that I really needed time to get it all out of my system. Amelia helped me realize this. I also found that even though the charting was enlightening, the most important thing I did was RELAX!

I believe acupuncture can help everyone but you must relax and trust your own instincts when it comes to what aspects of Chinese medicine you are comfortable with. Good luck to you all! I hope I can inspire you to stay the course and relax!
