What consequences can anorexia have for a woman seeking pregnancy?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/06/2018

The problems of excessive thinness in women can cause alterations in their menstrual cycle. Ovulation can become irregular and even disappear, especially when there is a situation of anorexia nervosa.

On the other hand, the decrease in sex hormones can also affect the development of the endometrium, which makes it difficult to implant the embryo and, therefore, reduces the chances of pregnancy.
