Gonadotropin after lack of periods

I haven’t had periods in 3 years. The doctor originally thought it could. W because I’m an active person and have a lowish bmi (19.5). At my last appointment the doctor told me that he wants to start me on gonadotropin. I have had no treatment at all so far (apart from private acupuncture). My recent blood test showed my oestrogen level was slightly low. Has anyone had a similar experience? Or have any info on what I should expect? Ir how long I will need to wait before starting treatment? Any info would be great as I am slightly in the dark.

Have you tried to increase your BMI? I find I only have regular periods at a BMI 24-26. Any lower or higher and they go haywire!

When you were having periods was your weight higher than it is now?

Hi. My weight has always remained pretty much the same.
