Absent periods
Ever since i can remember, i have never had my periods. I did see a gynaedoc and he suggested that i start drinking triphasil tablets. I started drinking the tablets and had my periods every month. As soon as i stop the periods also stay away. What can be the problem? I am trying to fall pregnant?
Please help.

It is likely that you are not ovulating. There are a number of causes for this. As you are trying to fall pregnant, it would be a good idea to see a gynaecologist to discuss the next step.
