jennor Posted July 29, 2014 Share Posted July 29, 2014 Dear ladies, I just have to shout this to the roof tops somewhere, and I figure this is the only subforum where it wouldn't be too weird to bring it up. So, 7 years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune illness (ulcerative colitis) and at the same time I also go pregnant with my first daughter. After having her I was put on strong immunosuppressants but still experiencing flare-ups regularly. My period also never came back. I had some spotting in the summer of 2011 after trying a low carb diet. The diet made my tummy better, but it was just so uncomfortable and not appetizing to me, so I gradually went back to regular "healthy" grainfilled eating. Since I obviously couldn't get pregnant we had to get medical help to get pregnant with our second daughter and I had her in april 2012. The pregnancy was difficult and I think it was because I simply wasn't healthy enough to carry a child, I just tricked my body into doing it with hormone therapy. Since then no period. Last July I did my first Whole30 and I have done a couple of them since and stayed pretty strict paleo. 3 months ago I had a bleeding. I felt different but I didn't want to celebrate too early in case it was just some spotting. Well, since then I have been completely regular! I am not having anymore children, but it is still a huge thing for me that my body finally feels healthy enough to have a period again. I honestly never thought that would happen! It might be a weird thing to celebrate but... yiiiipppie! Link to comment
