81. The Hidden Health Impacts of Hypothalamic Amenorrhea

Today’s podcast is a topic I think needs more coverage, which is the hidden health impacts of hypothalamic amenorrhea.

Most people generally know the impacts that hypothalamic amenorrhea has on fertility and bone health, but what’s not often spoken about is how it also impacts your cardiovascular health, training adaptations from exercise, sexual health and mental health.

In this episode I chat through how low estrogen and the hormonal changes associated with Hypothalamic Amenorrhea impact your:

  • Heart health
  • Bone mineral density
  • Ability to increase your lean muscle mass from training
  • Sexual health, libido, and ability to enjoy sex from a pain/pleasure perspective
  • Mental health including the bidirectional relationship of HA with mood, neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, the increase incidence of eating disorders, fear of weight gain, and body image concerns
