I have finally gotten my period back after 5-6 months. My gyno got back the blood results and it said nothing was wrong. Weird huh? She talked about stress, anorexia, and other issues that could of caused it. But I am not anorexic, and the only month I was extremely stressed out to the point it should of effected my health was the month I got it back. Now I am dealing with another dilema. My breasts seem to have shrunk to a AA cup, if that. I still love myself the way I am. I love my girls too. But I was just wondering, do you think this is permenant? And how long should it take to bring them back again. I am at my highest weight ever, and most pitiful bra size. I think it's cause I am not producing enough estrogen yet. Which I so will wait till it comes back if that's the case. But I have also been having days where I can only have one meal a day because I am so busy and usually binge so I get all the calories I need. I am resolving this problem now. But could this also be a reason my cup size shrank. And omg, I am so sorry I posted another issue on breast. Please don't hate me!

Hey, kiwi? You've been around here long enough to know that we're all volunteers here. We try our best to get to questions as soon as we can, but not having your question answered within half an hour, especially later in the evening or during the night when there aren't as many staff available to answer questions, is something that can happen and is nothing to get impatient over.

Also? We prefer that if someone DOESN'T know an answer, to not just say so, because it wastes the resources the board needs to address everyone's questions and it can actually make it more likely someone who may know the answer never sees the topic.

That all said:

We really cannot tell you why your breast size is changing the way it is. It likely has to do with a hormone issue, or another nutrient or chemical issue in your own body that we just don't have the tools to digure out. Though, the fact that your eating habits are not the most healthy (binging all at once to get the calories you need in a day is not at all the healthy way to go about it, though I'm asusming you know that and mentioned you are working to fix that now).

I'd recomend you go back to your doctor (or go to your GP if you haven't yet gone like Heather last suggested to you). Ask them about the possibility of estrogen levels having an effect, ask what other nutrients or chemical imbalances you may need to address, tackle any stress or sleep or other general health problems you could be having, ask for a referral to a nutritionist who can help you plan the sort of meals during the day you should be getting, what times to get them, etc. so you're not hurting your body by binging all at once at one time during the day...
