Abstract

Authors’s conclusions: Vomiting for weight control may affect regularity of menses in adolescents, especially if their goal is weight loss.

Reviewer’s commentary: This is a cross-sectional study with a high risk of selection bias. In adolescents who consult for menstrual disorders, it may be useful, in selected cases, to investigate, by means of history taking and study of the family environment, the presence of signs and symptoms of a possible eating disorder.
