One of the most frequently asked questions both Lucy and I get from clients in recovery from hypothalamic amenorrhea is “what signs indicate that I’m about to get my period back?”
We know that hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery can feel tiring and the waiting game to get your first period is often that hardest part!
In this episode we go through all the signs and symptoms which indicate your period is about to come back including:
- What changes in cervical mucous to look out for that indicate ovulation (egg white cervical mucous versus other types)
- What follicular waves are and what they mean about your stage of recovery from hypothalamic amenorrhea
- How a shift in cervical position can help you identify what stage of the cycle you’re in and confirm ovulation (which is essential to regaining a period)
- Ovulation predictor kits – how and when to use them and what they mean
- When spotting might happen and its relationship with your period
- Changes in mood and increased cramping that might precede your first period
- A higher libido and what this means about your cycle, ovulation and chances of getting your first period
