Re: doctor said i was anorexic but i just got my period

Getting your period once is not proof that your weight is healthy, nor is missing your period once proof that there's something wrong with you.

A BMI of 15 is extremely low for anyone above the age of 10. I hope you and your family are getting appropriate professional help.

If you are thin enough that you miss your period even sometimes, that probably means your body isn't storing minerals, which could mean your bones will become weak. That's bad.
