not quite sure
Hi I have been suffering from a combination of anorexia and bulimia nervosa for the last 5 years and have only stopped menstruating for 6 months now.I'm still bulimic but have gained some weight although still under and do eat breakfast and supper.Is it possible I may never get my period ever again? I'm only 18 and would have liked to have kids but is there any chance it may be too late?
