Dr. Johanna Marie McShane's Whiteboard
Hi, great job on the recovery from the ED. You might have a meeting or two with a dietitian at this point to make sure you are getting the variety of nutrition you need. There's a connection between having enough fat in your diet and getting your period back.  It's also possible it's hormonal so I'd check in with a doctor. You definitely want to get your period back- the hormones involved in our menstrual cycle also are involved in bone development.
