I have had this for 5 years now(I'm 20)following severe anorexia nervosa.my bmi is currently 17 so probably not high enough for return of menstruation but have just had my hormone levels tested and wondered if someone can interpret the results i have for me.all i know is my estradiol level is 197,my FSH is 10.6 and my prolaction is normal.does anyone know if this means i am infertile etc??thanks for any help!

  • hi. i'm also on recovery from anorexia nervosa... my bmi was 15 - now it's around 20. i cant interpret the test result, but it might be good for you to test out your body fat % as well. women need to have 18% body fat to menstruate, and yea bmi 17 is def'ly too low.
