Anorexia nervosa, or anorexia, is a type of eating disorder. People with anorexia eat so little that they experience unhealthy weight loss and become dangerously thin. Generally speaking, they consider themselves to be overweight or fat, even when they are underweight or simply very thin. Anorexia affects girls and women more than boys and men. Anorexia is a serious health problem that can increase the risk of premature death. But people with anorexia can get better with treatment.
Pregnancy creates many changes in the body. It can be difficult or very uncomfortable to deal with some of these changes. Also, after delivery, it may take time for your body to return to the way it was before, or it may never be the way it was before the pregnancy.
