When will my period come back after gaining weight?

I'm 14 years old and started my period when I was 12. I weighed somewhere form 125-135 pounds at the time then I started to have problems with body image and eating healthy fats. When I was 14 I had one period in all the year of 2013 by November. When will I start again?

You probably won't want to hear this, but you should be checked out by a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner. You have to be very malnutritioned to have your period stop. It should come back very quickly if your body is getting enough nutrients. There are other causes for not getting your period so you need to make sure that there isn't another reason for it not to have restarted.

If that's the case, see a doctor for a check up incase something is wrong but foods shouldn't really change your period. You may be irregular like me, which just means it will come at different times and last for different times as well. Like sometimes it may last between 1-4 days and other times it my last a little more than a week. My irregular periods started after I had a period that lasted for 6 months straight. But still, visit a doctor to make sure that everything is working right.

Excellent advice with one error in point. Foods can indeed cause changes in your regularity. As can too much exercise. Do see your doctor and also get diet advice at the same appointment.

I didn't think it effected anything. Hmm I guess where they have to give me the birth control shot to stop me for bleeding so long, I didn't really noticed anything about it.

your diet really effects ur cycles... try to have a healthy diet.. eat more fruits and veggies .. stop eating snacks and junk food for a little while until u get normal cycles. and remember the date u got ur period in nov and start drinking hot coffee around the same dates in dec... and it isnt really a big problem ur just 12 ..best of luck :)

Do NOT drink any form of caffeine, such as hot chocolate or coffee, around your periods. It increases the pain of cramps you might have.
