    From your description, it sounds like you arent ovulating and therefore arent fertile, as the result of years of taking artificial hormones!

Your doctor *should* have told you before he first prescribed them that this is a possible side effect! It has been known for many years! The first published study was in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1966!If this is the problem, *most* women have a return of fertility within 2 years! However, for some it seems to be permanent! A high protein diet plus vitamin supplements (especially wheat germ oil) may help!Other possible causes for amenorrhea include PCOS (you can find lots of information about this on the Web) or being extremely underweight! If you think it could be PCOS, youll need to talk to a doctor! If you are very skinny, gaining weight will usually fix things!
