I have just started recovery for Anorexia and I have only gained a pound since Dec 2011. I know thats not great and it is partly my own fault but being honest it is such a struggle.
Anyway, last night I got my period back. I still have a BMI of 12.7 and have not had a period in a year. I still had my period all throughout having Anorexia and even had it at my lowest BMI of 12. My period stopped a year ago, guess my body had enough!
I just wondered if anyone else has regained their period during recovery while still being at a low weight?
Any info would be great!
You need to go to a hospital. Your BMI puts you at serious, serious risk of losing your life. Periods are the absolute least of your worries. Please go to the hospital
Thanks again :)
I don't know a whole lot about anorexia, but I do want to say, congratulations for acknowledging your eating disorder. I'm sure it is a struggle, are you under going any counselling or under a doctor's care? I hope so.
Best of luck, and I hope you put some healthy weight on soon!
I second that BMI 12 or 12.7 whatever it is Is very dangerous, i dont want to scare you but thats like dead dangerous. I see you have been maintaining on this for some time,
please get help asap, 1 lb in 6 months is nothing. I mean we can say great for you u know you have the ED but no not really, you need to go an get this taken care of and get help ASAP.
and yes i know its awful, i gained 20lbs this last year and a half, its hard, but i did not want to die, and i wanted to have a family and i wanted my ED to stop screaming at me all the time.
