Weight Gain before conceiving

I'm geiing slightly frustrated (not to mention impatient) and wondered if there is anyone else who is in (or has been in) the same boat as me. I came off the pill (cerazette) in December and have not had a single bleed (no withdrawal bleed - nothing).

I am wondering whether it is because my weight is low (my bmi is about 16). I am trying to gain weight but really struggling. Does anyone have any experience of conceiving at a low weight? Or can anyone advise on what I should be eating (or doing) to bring on my period and/or gain weight? Any advice would be welcomed :?


  • I would think your first point of call would be the Doctors. If you think you aren't having periods because you are underweight I would imagine you'd need to see a dietician...
