Hey, I'm 15 years old andI've been vegan for almost 3 months now :) But I have this one problem. I haven't had my period since I started eating vegan. I'm going to a NaturoPath this week,and she thinks I'm not getting enough protein in my diet. What should I do? Thoughts? Thanks :)
hi Taylor, When I was 15 Isometimes my period wouldn't come for a few months ( I wasn't vegan). I think it's pretty normal. It usually had more to do with exersizing a lot and being young rather than missing a particular nutrient. My friends all had tons of irregular issues. For me I got my first period when I was 13 and they didn't start happening every 28 daysish until I was around 20. A gynocologist would probably just put you on hormonal birth control, but just don't even worry about and enjoy the break.
