The important point is whether or not these women are actually ovulating
and if so are they capable of reproducing. If not, that is a clear sign
that they are under metabolic stress, not in superb health. Athletes
expending huge amounts of calories, bulimics surviving on very few
calories, and women who are starving have also lost menses.
