How I got my period back in 3 months? These are the 5 natural tips to get your period back.

1 out of 4 menstruating age women do not have a regular cycle.

Several variables are at play here including

  • Disordered eating / nutrient imbalances
  • Autoimmunity 
  • Post birth control or birth control syndrome
  • PCOS
  • And stress—lots of stress

I get it—for most of my life, I did not have a period…until I was 35. Primarily due to HPA AXIS dysregulation, lots of stress! From the time I was 9 to 33 I was sick with all sorts of eating disorders and chronic illnesses, and likewise, my body was not on the same page to make a baby or create another life (I could barely take care of myself). 

And if you want to hear a funny story…the day I got it, I was at a Tony Robbins conference…on Relationship Day, thinking about the significant other—the guy I like, saying my incantations, dreaming of our future…and BOOM: Red Tide unleashed! 

GOD IS RARELY EARLY WITH HIS PROMISES BUT HE IS NEVER LATE, and my period was truly a GOD THING—I had prayed for at least 15 years for my cycle…now I have it regularly and even though it has its rough moments….I would not trade it for anything. It’s a sign that I am healthy.

If you can relate to not having a period, then this video is for you—5 simple insights to get your period back—that have nothing to do with the classic advice to: “just eat more, stop working out and gain some weight” advice out there.

5 Best Ways to Get Your Period Back Naturally

#1. See Yourself as Healthy and Healed

Believing is seeing. The #1 thing that helped me get my period back after not having it for my entire life was seeing myself as if I already had it back. Making up my mind that the old sick Lauryn no longer existed. Only healthy, thriving, happy, restored Lauryn. 

If you want it, know it’s yours. Celebrate it is yours.


I have a regular cycle.

Every single cell in my body is healthy, every single cell in my body is well. 

I love my body and my body loves me.

I am worth all the good things that life has to offer—including my period, the boy i love, fertility, etc. You name it.

Visualize who THAT GIRL is in your mind. Get a picture. Breathe—and feel into it. Feel the energy, the happiness, the manifestation that is already yours when you DECIDE.

The 3D reality is dead and gone. Just focus on what you want and believe that you will get your period back.

If you need help upping the ante, take inspired action. Go ahead and buy the tampons or pads and keep them in your bathroom where you can see them. Remind your subconscious mind that you have your cycle and you are made new! 

Think, act, believe as if you are that girl already. Rock that main character energy and soon enough you will get your period back.

#2. Balance Your Plate, Make Friends with Carbs, Get Your Period Back

I tuned out the noise in my 3D world that “carbs make you fat,” or “carbs make you weak,” or “carbs are bad.” 

I added in carbs—nothing crazy—added in a starch a day with my dinner time meal and stopped fearing fruit too, adding in half a banana or berries to my morning smoothie. 

I am a creature of habit so my starch was typically a winter squash like Kabocha or Butternut squash or a sweet potato or some red potatoes. 

A little bit went a long way. The amount will look different for everyone—I already had the protein and fats covered. My body was just missing out on the carb balancer.

For you, you may have the carb thing dialed. You actually need complete proteins, amino acids from meat or healthy fats with each meal.

The bottom line? Balance! No one ever did a study showing balance to be a bad thing. In addition, if you want a balanced cycle and wish to get your period back, you need a balanced plate. There should be presence of protein, fat and carbs, both a little starch and fruit, as well as well cooked non starchy dark green veggies. 

On this note too, balance your meals by eating at least 3 to 4 times per day versus the whole intermittent fasting and 1 to 2 meals per day thing. There is simply no need to cram all your daily calories and nutrients into an 8 hour window. Just keep things balanced with breakfast, lunch and dinner and you will get your period back.

#3. Probiotic Up

A healthy gut equals healthy hormones.

High dose probiotic therapy helped “fix” my dysbiotic gut bugs so I could actually start absorbing nutrients.

I took 900 billion CFUs—2 packets of a probiotic called Visbiome—for 3 months. 

However, not everyone needs that formula or that many probiotics—probiotics are VERY GUT SPECIFIC. 

Ideally look for well-tolerated low-histamine, d-lactate free strains to start, like those found in spore based probiotics. There are also a handful of D-lactate free powder formulas with 100 billion-200 billion CFUs which can be a beneficial dose; and probiotics with special gut-delivery capsules so they can transit stomach acid. 

And if anything, prebiotics with soluble fibers can be super helpful like GI Ultra Max, along with humic-fulvic minerals for leaky gut support. 

#4. Focus Your Workout Energy on Strength & HIIT Training

Train with intention and purpose. Chronic cardio like running like a hamster on a wheel—as your only form of exercise is only going to signal to your body that you’re running from a bear (ie. “I am stressed). 

You can definitely still workout and perhaps get even more variety and fun at the same time.

Above all do what you love—even boxing, dance, yoga, walking.

I walked a ton and did a ton of yoga along with my weights and HIIT workouts. 

I just cut the chronic cardio.

Even if you love running for miles and miles, know you can come back to it. For now, explore new things to get your period back naturally. 

#5. Just Breathe

Speaking of yoga…game-changing. I tend to be a type A, high performer, cardio kinda girl—at least I was before I found yoga and deliberately wanting get your period back.

And what I inadvertently found is that my HPA AXIS—my stress levels—LOVED IT.

I got away from screens, my GO GO GO mode and learned how to chill out my HPA AXIS for the first time in my life. I really never realized how much my body needed it to get your period back.

Nervous system regulation is a critical piece to the “get back your period puzzle” here, and I call it “just breathe” because you are basically giving your stress levels a breath of fresh air.

Whether it’s yoga, actual breath work, meditation, qi gong, daily nature breaks, sauna sessions, hip hop dance class for fun, creativity time to paint, play music or write…daily do something that is intentionally targeted at NERVOUS SYSTEM REGULATION.

Tune out of your phone and to-do lists, get present and just breathe. These are great thing if you want to get your period back.
