    I lost my period for a month when I was eating 1100-1200 with a hour of exercise. It came back as soon as I added back calories for exercise(1300-1400 instead)

    Go to doctor get all your hormones checked. Might me worth looking up HA (hypothalamic amenorrhea) and the female triad see if you symptoms match as sometimes the combination between stress restriction and exercise can mess around with hormones too.

    Do not do this instead of doctor

    It arrived guys it arrived

    On your original post in August, you said you hadn’t had a period in four months (i.e., roughly April). Is this the first time you’ve had a period since April? And did you ever go to the doctor? This is absolutely still worth seeing your doctor about.

    ^^ What @apullum said, especially if irregular periods aren't normal for you. Irregular periods are frequently symptomatic of a few things more serious than calorie loss and should be followed up on.

    I have lost my period quite a few times over the course of my life and probably about 80% of the instances were due to other underlying issues. Hypothyroidism, B-12 insufficiency, Iron insufficiency, and even being too low in body fat.

    At your age, it is a good thing to keep an eye on, even if it's just to know if irregularity is *normal* for you, and if so, what is the root cause(s)? It might be cause for concern, or it might not be, but you won't know until you talk it over with your doctor and establish a baseline for yourself.

    Don't make an assumption - discuss with your doctor.
