What if I'm infertile...?

I didn't know where else to put it. This is a topic I'm not exactly taking lightly.

I am still recovering from anorexia but I'm being able to eat nearly normally now. Heck, I ate a whole freaking pizza yesterday! :D

But, during that time, I only got my period once every three or four moths. Even then it was really short, maybe lasted only for a day.

Even now, they come only every 2 or 3 months. I'm really afraid of being infertile.

I don't really want kids but if I ever change my mind and I AM infertile or nearly infertile, what should I do? And how do I know if I'm infertile?

From what I know infertility caused by anorexia is usually reversible, the best thing you can do is keep going with recovery :)
Obviously there are other reasons for irregular/fewer than 'normal' periods so if they don't settle as you continue to recover it may well be worth seeking medical advice.
I'm speculating a little here but if your reduced menstruation is due to anorexia then I'd imagine you still have a normal number of healthy eggs which means that there will be many options available to you if you do find yourself having fertility difficulties. A specialist would be necessary to really advise you but there could be treatments from hormone therapies to IVF to surrogacy.
So, yeah I would try not to worry too much at the moment but if you are concerned bring it up with a doctor.

Always seem to get things just that little bit wrong.

Well done for doing so well in your journey towards recovery, that's fantastic to hear.

With regards to your concerns about fertility all you can really do is approach a doctor who should then be able to do some tests and let you know.

Wishing you luck :)

I think that if u have recovered than u should beable to get pregnant if u want.
If ur having a hard time getting pregnant it could be because ur not ovualting.
Are u ovulating??
If u are or arent & still cant get pregnant u can talk to ur doctor about options their's also some herbs out their that can help with infertitlly.
*Hugs* I'm glad ur recovering :)
Wish u luck :)
