Default Re: getting ur period

Hmmm... I'm hoping and assuming you have never contracted an STD. Now one of my friends just doesn't have her period regularly. It could be something like that... Or...

It looks like if you are underweight, then your body cannot support ovulation and therefore, you don't have your period. I would suggest gaining more weight and keep it on. If you gain weight, then wait a week, and give up on it and lose that weight, your body will not take to it. Give it some time. Try to gain up to 120 at the very least, but if it still doesn't show, then try keeping that weight and simply drink more fluids (they have magical powers ).

Hope that helps!

what you have to do is go to a doctor.
if its your first year having your period its normal to skip a few months, but 7 months is too much, something is seriously wrong. no matter what, GO TELL YOUR DOCTOR!

birth control pills probably won't make you gain weight.

also, the horomones that cause your period (estrogen) are stored in fat. that sounds bad, but it isn't. women natrually have a layer of fat under their skin so they can store this horomone, and have kids. if there isn't enough fat on a woman's body, then the horomones have no where to be stored, so they disappear.


you should see a doctor to see what he/she says about you going on birth control

Peace out loves,

Meg

Nice to see your still so helpful, Alex.

First, if it was your first or one of your first periods the last time you had it then don't worry, that's part of growing up. If you are older and at one time had a steady period (regularly once a month) then you may need to be worried. Once you get to a steady healthy weight and after a significant amount of time (I'd say half a year or year at least) you should go to a gynaecologist or doctor (possibly even endocrinologist) and make sure everything is working and you havn't gotten any STD's or didn't damage anything when you were bullemic.

When people get anorexia, their period stops and the majority does come back in time. Some peoples periods take as much as three years to come back so maybe it has somethng to do with that. You said you suffered from bulimia which could have made you gain less weight than intended but I personally feel the period problem is not something to worry about. If this problem persists for longer than three years, maybe you should see a doc to see if they have any advice or information. If you still have bulimia...i feel you should stop as some people suffer dramatcically from that and can even end up in hospital from severe cases. I hope your problem is solved
