Bulimia can inhibit healthy reproduction.

Women with bulimia often experience missed periods. Bulimia can have lasting effects on reproduction even when your menstrual cycle goes back to normal. The danger is even greater for women who get pregnant during episodes of “active” bulimia.

Consequences can include:

gestational diabetes
high blood pressure during pregnancy
breech baby and subsequent cesarean delivery
birth defects
