I am 24 years old and started my period when i was 11.
I had regular periods all of my teen years, although I did take both DEPO and Pill form of birth control. After stopping the all forms of birth control (excluding condoms) I resumed my periods for a short time and then eventually they stopped. It has been 3 years since my last period.
After my periods stopped I gained an unfathomable amount of weight. 150 lbs worth, (mind you I'm a active person, constantly moving and working out, but unable to lose weight) in which case made other health factors pop up like shortness of breath, leg cramps, headaches, chest pains, and the obvious the inability to conceive children.
My question is, does anyone know why my periods would have stopped after being regular for 9 years and why it caused all my other health problems.
