    Question 3 months late because of weight

    Im an 18/f, about 5'3 and 87 lbs. Im trying to gain weight (so far have gained 2 lbs in 2 1/2 weeks) I've always had a pretty "regular" cycle but I havent had a period since mid July and I know its from my weight. When should I get my periods back? Thank you

    I think you should make an appointment to see your doctor. I have never heard of that.

    It is very common that women who lose alot of weight or who are underweight such as yourself will lose their cycles. When can you expect them back? When you get up to a more normal weight then what you are. I know you can do this keep the faith and eat healthy organic foods..Good luck, Lisa

    mops,

    Is it possible that you are pregnant?

    It's not pregnancy it's DEFIANTELY weight. Are you or have you ever dealth with an eating disorder? I agree with the poster that says see a doctor. You DEFINATELY need to gain weight..you are doign well so far but 2 lbs in 2.5 wks is on the slow side. Better some than none, but I strongly suggest you gain about 2lbs/week and keep it on to be healthy.

    yeah i also havn't had my period since sometime in april...( recovering from an ED), when you gain a bit more weight your body will start the cycle again. this happens because your body thinks that it's not an appropreate time for you to become pergnant because of your weight and so the cycle stops to prevent you from possibly becoming pregnat..( i've done my research on this one) :P
