My alternative doctor prescribed HCG injections because he heard it could really help boost the ovaries and it worked! I got my period about a week after starting and it has been over 5 years since my last period.

I am a bit worried about the use of HCG though. I don't really understand how it works since it seems to be effective ONLY because of the 500 cal diet which I am definitely not doing. Does anyone know how this works? Why it may have worked to restore my cycle?
