When Tina Muir made the decision to step away from her career as a professional marathon runner in order to regain her menstrual cycle, her story grabbed the attention of the world. News outlets like People Magazine, ESPN, Runner’s World, Glamour, SELF, and many others covered her story.
After spending nine years hiding her secret and countless hours having bloodwork and testing done and exploring medication and naturopathy, she made the radical decision to step away from her career in order to get her period back.
But perhaps even more shocking was her decision to share her story openly with the world in the hopes of helping others faced with similar dead ends and disappointments.
