Eating Disorders Delay Pregnancy
Would-be mothers should seek help early for any symptoms of eating disorders. A study of more than 11,000 UK mothers has found that women with a history of eating disorders may struggle to become pregnant quickly and are more than twice as likely to need fertility treatment. Pregnancy rates after six months were lower in women with anorexia or bulimia, but by a year they were the same as the general population.
