Oh hon, that is sad. Did you ask for a second opinion? If you would gain weight would it change anything?

I am on the pill and that keeps my hormon levels just right. But for you to start taking them you must first get an actual period.

If you really want to have children I would find more information and ask for more opinions.

It's never too late

Definitely get a second opinion! See if gaining enough weight would change it. Then you could start the pill to help regulate. Oh and definitely look into the iron pills too! I also heard high dosages of vitamin C works too, but be careful on the amount.

as your BMI goes below 18 your body stops producing as much estrogen and you may stop ovulating since your body is convinced that you are not able to carry a child. infertility can be reversed in our day and age but it may require for you to get your BMI up and maybe take some fertility medication.
