111. Talking to loved ones about your hypothalamic amenorrhea recovery

In recovery from hypothalamic amenorrhea you are often dealing with some difficult changes and having a support network that understands and encourages you can make the journey to recovering your period so much more successful.

In today’s episode of Holistic Health Radio, Lucy McConnell and I will be talking about how to speak with loved ones about your recovery from HA. This is also relevant if you’re in recovery from an eating disorder or disordered eating as well.

In this podcast we discuss:

  • The impact of Hypothalamic Amenorrhea on libido and managing your sex life with a partner
  • How your loved ones can support you with food challenges and at meal times in HA/ED recovery
  • Talking about body changes and the fears you have surrounding that with your loved ones 
  • Creating safe boundaries with family, friends and partners to help you flourish in your HA/ED recovery 
  • Dealing with emotions in productive ways so you don’t lash out at your partner
  • Learning how to communicate in healthy ways about what you need from others and what they need back
