Let me start by saying that i once had normal periods until i was anorexic two years ago for like about a year. when i was ana i skipped periods and when i did have them they were light. Now i am not ana but im still super skinny (5'2" 97lbs) . My periods are still fairly light, irregular, and far apart though, and it has now been like 36 days since the end of my last one but im not sure this is too much cause for concern except...30 days ago me and my bf were fooling around, he masturbated and then fingered me a while later, between we sat around for i dont know how long, 2-10 min. I didnt notice emission of any fluid while he was masturbating. But still im worried because i have not started yet, any way i could be pregnant?
is this dangerous or unusual that my periods are always far apart and light for just 3-6 days?

Have you seen a gynecologist about this, either after recovering from anorexia or recently? Weight can play a factor in cycle irregularity, and if you are a bit underweight, that could certain be having an effect on the length of your cycles - to make sure you're in good reproductive health, I'd recomend you schedule an appointment to see your gynecologist again, or now if you haven't already.

It doesn't sound like you had a pregnancy risk from what you're explaining, so I'd still go with trying to get into your gynecologist.
