Avatar f tn Oh my gosh, so sorry for your question going unanswered for so long. This is very important. It's obviously time to really get serious about the anorexia. It's a difficult diagnosis in general. It can be difficult to get proper nutrition when pregnant and having an eating disorder and so babies can then have a low birth weight. Trying to get the right number of calories as well as staying hydrating and not over exercising will be your challenge and one to take seriously.

1030383 tn?1338460785 I have a history of anorexia, but it's 90% in the past (I think I'll always have tendencies). I also have Hep C. Lately nothing tastes good, I don't want to eat - I've been losing so much weight that I have to belt my skinniest pants. I'm pretty sure this is mostly due to the Hep C, but I can't help "sort of, kind of" enjoying it...

Avatar f tn Sometimes women miss a period because they are stressed. You don't say how old you are, but big stressors like exams, divorce/death in the family, etc. can effect your cycle. Anorexia can make it stop too. Breathe. You're pregnant or you're not. Worrying won't change the result, and it's bad for your body. Blessings.

This can be a very serious health risk...see a professional as soon as possible.
Avatar f tn t happen over night and doing it right will keep it off longer... With anorexia the second you start to eat your body holds in everything including the fat because it knows you will starve it again. Also when you stop eating your body will start to eat itself (including your muscles). You can do this hun... keep it up and persevere.

Avatar f tn (I have a blood pressure machine that my doctor recommended that I get to monitor my heart rate) and I get very dizzy and my vision goes black. My blood pressure also drops. According to my doctor, my heart rate should be in the mid-50s to the low 60s and during my physical it was in the high 60s. That's when she told me to check my heart rate often. Thank you for your reply.
Avatar n tn Dear kate306, Your gastrointestinal system could definitely be thrown off from your anorexia. Your current anxiety could be the culprit for your diarrhea. Anxiety and Anorexia often go hand in hand. Seeking medical attention for your diarrhea is recommended. Getting to the root of your anxiety and decreasing your anxiety is critical.

Avatar f tn For the majority of women, a shorter-than-average menstrual period is no cause for concern. As women age, their cycles regulate and the days of bleeding may shorten. It's not uncommon for women to have periods lasting only a couple of days. Women who are worried about the decrease in the number of days on their menstrual period should consult their physician. lifestyle of the woman. Stress from work or relationships may cause the bleeding to become more severe or stop sooner than normal.
