Hi my nutritionist says she will be happy when my period comes back but well also keep continuing until you get to a healthy weight. What if i were at a healthy weight and my period would not be there yet. Because its not like it wasn't consistent in the first place always. I am not sure what i should do.

Hi Puppies10123, It's great that you're reaching out. I'm sure your nutritionist knows what she is doing, and you're going to have to trust her. Sometimes it takes time for your body to balance out and get on a normal schedule. The first year or so of getting your period it's not always consistent. Improper eating habits can also cause problems in your hormone levels and other factors contributing to your period, so you'll just have to give it time and trust your nutritionist.

I have a very bloated stomach and have been experiencing a lot of digestive problems. I have gone to a doctor but because my BMI is normal he is not taking me seriously. I exercise a lot (intense exercise 2-3 hours per day) and I do not eat many grains. My carbs come mostly from fruits and vegtables. What could cause stomach bloating?
