      hey shhwee

      bummer that your period is not back yet... but it can take several months for it to come back. if you're feeling impatient, you could ask for a blood test to check your hormone levels... i also really wanted my period back. but no period after about two months and symptoms consistent with menopause led me to go ahead and ask for a blood test. i found out that i'm post-menopausal over ten years early. heavy sigh. now, i am not worried about fertility - we adopted... however, i was worried about my bone density and my heart health as well as fatigue and insomnia and hot flashes and generally feeling low and cruddy. now, i'm on hormone replacement therapy... and it's only been two days, and i'm feeling better.

      anyway... that's my story... are you having hot flashes or anything like that? if no... then i'd say be a little bit patient... if yes... then consider requesting a hormone blood test...

      good luck!
