Want my period back!
I haven't had my period for a few months now. I'm not pregnant (test shows) and as far as my old gynae knows, all is well internally. Is there a pill/contraception i can go on that will bring back my period. FYI: my period stopped when i had a three mth injection in sept. I haven't had it since coz of the side effects.

You could use the oral contraceptive pill but this will not necessarily help you to fall pregnant sooner.
Provera, as Marlese suggests, would not be a good idea in your situation as it contains progesterone like the injection and will make things worse. Usually the best thing is just to be patient and wait for your body to correct itself.
