I have recently started to recover from anorexia, which lasted for about 5 months. I'm 162 cm and 51 kg now or 5'3" and 112 pounds. I eat very healthy now,lots of fruits, vegatables and protein and I do some exercises every now and then(usually 3-4 times a week). Unfortunately, I haven't had my period since November(I was 49 kg and I had my last period then),that is for 7 months and I haven't taken any pills, as I have been told by the doctor that as long as I gain weight sooner or later the periods will come. But my questions are: "How much weight should I gain???Do I need to reach a standard BMI??? Am I still considered underweight?" and "Does excercising affect my recovery?Should I stop?"
Thank you for your time and attention in advance.
