losing period in bulimia

by kelly

Hi there,

First of all I think what you've done is very inspirational and admiring.

But apart from that i have a question...

You know how loss or periods is a symptom of bulimia, how long after the recover will I be getting my periods back?


Shaye Says

Hi Kelly!

Period loss is definitely one of the side effects of bulimia... And, the time that it takes to return during recovery is different for everyone...

Many people I've spoke to say that they got their periods back very shortly after beginning recovery... For others it took up to a year.

Although I can't tell you exactly how long it will take - I can tell you that if you keep nourishing your body and working on recovery - it will happen. Your body is resilient and given the chance it will bounce back.
