Have amenorrhea due to weight loss. Will my menses return if I maintain present weight?

Hello, I am struggling with amenorrhea for the last 10 months due to a big weight of loss. I used to weigh 74 kg and now I weigh 54,5 kg. My height is 1.68 m . I lost my period when I dropped to 57 kg. Then I continued to lose weight and my lower number on scale was 51 kg. I made an effort to put on some weight ,so now I weigh 54 kg. My question is the following; is it possible that my menses will return if I maintain this weight for a period of time? Or do I have to return to the weight I was when I had my last period?

Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Your condition is known as anorexia nervosa. The periods problem faced by you will be solved once your weight stabilises but you need to know the reason behind such drastic weight loss.
It can be just a change in lifestyle or some grave disease affecting your body
In case you have further questions you can consult me on health care magic forum and i will be happy to help
Take care and wish you all the best.
