Welcome, Warriors! ❤

Hi there! My name is Hanne Arts and a I'm twenty-two year old student, author, YouTuber, and recovery warrior. I started writing when I was about seven, and I began incorporating some of my own mental health struggles into my works from the age of thirteen. I published my debut novel, JUST PERFECT, in December 2014, followed by its sequel, RED RIBBONS, in October 2017.

How I Got my Period Back (Part V)

Newsflash: I probably didn't lose my period due to "wrong" nutrition or exercise this time around. My iron was probably just too low due to my usually much-too-heavy periods, requiring my body to repair this deficit first before giving me my period back. [I saw a doctor several days ago and she said "it is probably just the IUD." I still managed to arrange a blood test appointment, though, so I will update you all later of the results.]

Nevertheless, I HAVE struggled with primary amenorrhea before, and this occurrence simply reminded me why I needed to make this video series. I will also be getting this blood test, just to ensure everything is still ok... but I am confident that it is, and I hope to be able to tell you all next month that, once again, Aunt Flo came knocking at my door.
