The book

No Period. Now What? is the most comprehensive guide to hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery available. The book had its genesis in the authors’ blogs: Nico’s No Period. Baby? and Steph’s Run for Fun. No Period. Now What? debuted on April 15, 2016. Three and a half years of work on the book followed almost a decade of working with women on hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery through an online forum.

No Period. Now What? in the news!

Elite runner Tina Muir found No Period. Now What? and decided to follow our advice and stop running for a while to try and regain her menstrual cycles (missing for nine years) with the eventual goal of pregnancy. Well, that led to a bit of a firestorm in the running world, with her story picked up by Runner’s World, ESPN.com, Well+Good, People, Self, and Glamour

And read here for a quick update on Tina’s story.

I am so utterly thrilled by the reception of our hypothalamic amenorrhea/female athlete triad recovery book so far - we seem to have met our goal of providing a resource that can help women to recognize what habits might be less than healthy, and encourage and support them through making the necessary

Hi, I got my copy of the book yesterday and am already like halfway done. Thank you so much for writing this! It totally affirmed my decision to cut out running entirely for the time being. It does a great job of explaining why "recovery" levels of exercise should be different from normal levels of exercise,

I have to say, in the few chapters I've read so far it has been the best reading material for HA. I lost my period about 18 months now and I am at the stage where eating and gaining weight is absolutely terrifying for me. I went from 184 to 118 to currently 134 and I want to train for the NYC marathon

No Period. Now What? is awesome. I've never seen a book with such a balance of science and humanity. I love that every single page is speckled with our stories. It's like reading my own diary. And then it's all backed up with more research that I ever knew existed. I can't imagine the amount

I have just finished Part 2 of the book and I am still really enjoying reading. It struck home for me and I found going through some of it quite emotional (and I don't think that's just pregnancy hormones!). I could identify with so much and also realized how hard I will have to work
