HELP WITH AMENORRHEA

I currently have amenorrhea. I am 16 years old, almost 5'5", and around 115-116 pounds. At one time, I reached a weight of around 147 pounds and then began to rapidly lose weight over a period of 5 months, sometimes not using the healthiest methods. I don't think I had developed an ED, but my caloric intake was too low. After reaching a low of 112-113 pounds, I increased my caloric intake and I hope to gain some more. I get enough protein (50-60 g per day), enough calcium (1300 mg or more per day) and I have significantly increased my fat intake, although I should probably increase it more. I have not ruled out other causes for my amenorrhea. Plus, I was an active tennis player, but now that I'm on off-season, I'm pretty much sedentary. When, at what weight, do you think my period should return?

Diet, exercise and lifestyle does have an influence over the menstrual cycles. So if there is significant change in it, it can cause amenorrhea. Hence for now I would suggest you to consult our gynecologist for further guidance. I am giving you the link for the same
