90. How to Recover Your Period Naturally and Get Pregnant with Registered Dietitian Lindsey Lusson

Today on the podcast I’m joined by Lindsey Lusson, a Registered Dietitian, wife, and momma to a 2-year-old girl with a baby boy currently on the way.

Through her own personal health journey, Lindsey has learned a lot about how under eating can wreak havoc on your health.

For 13 years she did not have a natural period and when she and her husband wanted to begin trying for a baby, she felt lost with no direction on how to get pregnant.

Thankfully, she was able to get her hands a book about Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (HA) and decided to follow the recovery protocol to regain her cycles naturally. In less than a month she was able to get her period back and 3 months later got pregnant naturally despite being told that she would need fertility treatment to start a family.

This experience led her to wanting to support others who have lost their period due to HA, which of course is my mission too.

In this episode Lindsey and I discuss:

  • Her journey with Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
  • What she did to get her own period back
  • The importance of accountability on your HA recovery journey
  • The impact of high intensity exercise on your HA recovery journey
  • Body image struggles and how to deal with them
  • What to expect when trying to conceive naturally after HA recovery
  • When fertility treatments may be helpful versus unnecessary if trying to conceive
  • Her best tips for those in HA recovery looking to get their periods back naturally
