It's hard to say for sure, I know that being severely underweight can stop your periods from comming, have you discussed this with your GI or GP?

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I had a bunch of surgeries this spring and didn't have my period for 5 months. Now its back and I wish it would go away. I would ask your doctor and if they say its okay then it probably fine.

Periods can stop for a number of reasons, including being underweight and trauma. Sounds like this year you've had a bit of both!
I often lose my periods for months when I'm underweight - they only return when I've been a reasonable weight for a while, like a good 2-3 months weighing over 8 stone (112lbs/50kg+) it takes your body time to adjust. If you're still a stone under your normal weight it may take a few more pounds and a bit more time. If you're really concerned speak to your doctor, mine never seemed too worried about it and said like all things it can take time, your bodys been through a lot, and so far my periods always returned eventually.
