Amenorrhea is affecting females at an alarming rate.
I can’t stress enough how important it is for us girls to get our periods every month.
As female runners especially, making sure that we are balancing our calories in with energy out is critical for keeping our bodies working the way that they should.
Not getting a period is a really big deal. You may think that it isn’t but inside, your body is in complete disarray without happy functioning hormones.
The risk of injury, the damage to your metabolism, organs, bones, muscles and even risk of infertility is dangerous and should not be ignored.
I have written several posts regarding my experience with amenorrhea, the importance of a regular menstrual cycle and why I gave up the scale.
The feedback I receive whenever I share these posts is amazing!
I put together a collection of posts on the subject of amenorrhea just in case you missed one. Although I am certainly not a doctor, should you ever have a question, feel free to contact me!
