Hi, great job on the recovery from the ED. That's terrific! You might consider having 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 possible to be at a relatively normal weight but not have enough fat in your diet, which would affect your menstrual cycle. It's also possible there's something hormonal going on so I'd check in with a doctor to make sure all the hormone stuff is in balance. You definitely want to get your period back- the hormones involved in our menstrual cycle also are involved in bone development. If you're not having a period you're missing important opportunities to develop bone, which obviously isn't a good thing! Best of luck, and keep up the good work in your recovery.
