At Luna Roja, we know that overweight in women is a diverse and complex issue, which goes beyond aesthetic standards, deeply impacting female health. It is essential to recognize that although body acceptance movements are valuable, the primary goal should always be a healthy body.

Each body is unique, and it is vital that overweight evaluations are done with the help of health professionals. If you want to accurately assess your weight, we recommend visiting the CDC website to use its CDC BMI Calculator.

Menstrual changes due to being overweight

Weight fluctuations can significantly affect your menstrual cycle. Significant weight loss or gain can cause amenorrhea (absence of menstruation) and other hormonal problems. More than 14% of women experience irregular cycles due to these variations.

Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are thyroid conditions that can make it difficult to lose weight and affect your menstruation. These conditions must be diagnosed and treated by a health professional. At Luna Roja, we want to remind you that your beauty and value are not defined by your weight. We encourage you to take care of your health, because you are already beautiful.

Overweight and its Impact on Menstruation

Factors contributing to overweight and its impact on menstruation

In addition to thyroid disorders, factors such as eating disorders, mental health and genetics can influence your weight and, therefore, your menstrual cycle. An increase in estrogen levels due to being overweight can unbalance your menstrual cycle.

It is crucial that a doctor determine whether your lack of menstruation is due to being overweight and advise you on appropriate lifestyle changes or medical treatments. At Luna Roja, we encourage you to take small steps toward healthy habits, such as drinking more water, engaging in moderate physical activity, and adopting a balanced diet.

Hormones and menstruation: A complex relationship

Hormonal imbalances, caused by both internal factors such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, and external factors such as diet or stress, play a crucial role in the regularity of your menstruation. Before following any internet recommendations, it is important to consult a doctor to receive appropriate treatment for your specific situation.

If you are overweight and have no menstruation, it is essential to see a gynecologist to obtain the appropriate diagnosis and treatment. But in the meantime, you can start implementing positive changes into your daily routine.

Your experience matters to us

At Luna Roja, we want to listen to you. If you are overweight or obese, share with us your experience and how you feel about menstruation. Your story is important and can help other women in similar situations.
