Hello! I am a woman of reproductive age and am interested in the idea of CR. I am looking for information on how this affects the hormonal profile and function, and whether it causes amenorrhea, and if so, whether this is by default a bad thing. Most of the information on amenorrhea I can find tends to refer to anorexic or overly athletic individuals and classifies this as a non-desirable or pathological occurrence. However, I have read before that having fewer periods and lower levels of female hormones can have a protective effect against cancers. If I go on a CR diet, will I be at risk of losing my periods, and is this dangerous to my health if so? What is the experience of other CR women, and have their been tests or studies on this particular topic? Any help pointing me in the direction of resources on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
