Amenorrhea? - May 31st 2016, 11:38 PM

In the past few months, my cycle has been becoming irregular. Currently, I am three weeks late for my period. I'm at a "low-end" healthy weight by BMI standards so it's a bit confusing for me - I'd only experienced amenorrhea before when significantly underweight.

Also, I've been in recovery for over a year and a half now and once my period came back, it was pretty regular for the most part. Until now.

I'm wondering if this could be related to my fat intake. I've been eating more plant based lately and, naturally, have been getting less fat. However, I'm also curious as to whether or not anyone has any suggestions as to what I should do, or theories as to why this is happening even though I'm at a healthy weight.

I am sorry you haven't gotten a reply. I don't know if I'll be much help. I know that this can occur for other reasons besides being underweight. I know being underweight is a huge cause for it but eating issues in general can cause it to happen and I think that has something to do with not having the proper nutrition.

We talked about it briefly in treatment but I don't recall everything.

Do you think you could talk to your general practitioner about this just to make sure that there isn't something else causing the issue?
