Understanding Hypothalamic Amenorrhea, Body Image and Fertility

When I started my journey into trying to conceive I was 27 years old, lost a bit of weight in the name of health and lost my period and could find no-one who could explain to me what had happened to me.

I went from doctor to doctor but in the end had to explain it and fix it for myself – little did I realise what happened to me has a name!

So today on the podcast, I’m so excited to have Sarah Liz King, a Health At Every Size (HAES) Exercise Physiologist and Health coach.

Sarah, helps women un-learn toxic diet culture and provide a science-backed, holistic approach to mental and physical wellness that will last a lifetime.

And focusses women on food freedom, positive body image and having a good relationship with food and exercise.

So many women I speak as a fertility coach have body image issues and a bad relationship with food and exercise, whether that is because they are told they need to lose weight or because they have always strived to be the ‘perfect’ weight.

And when we are going through something like Infertility – it can be so hard to love and trust our bodies when we already feel like they are broken.

Sarah and I had such a good discussion and many issues including eating disorders, body image, hypothalamic amenorrhea and exercise.

Tune in to hear us talk about:

  • – The shame attached to fertility issues and how so many women think their body is broken
  • – Sarah’s eating disorder story and recovery
  • – How she recovered her period after discovering she had Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (HA)
  • – My own personal story of anorexia and HA (now I know what it is called!)
  • – Why HA manifests in the body
  • – Managing your mindset in a diet culture and how on your fertility journey it can be working against you
  • – How to drop the all or nothing thinking and find balance
  • – Exercise – what is too much and what is too little
  • – And so much more…
