    If you make yourself throw up, you are probably not getting the nutrients you need. If you are extremely underweight that could make you stop getting your period, because it is the body's natural defense mechanism. Because if you don't have enough on your bones, how would you be able to give enough nutrients to a baby growing inside of you if you were to become pregnant. So the period stopping is the body's natural response to being underweight.

    P.S. If you are currently sexually active, make sure you continue to use protection though, because you could become fertile again and not know until until weeks later when you get your period again.
