Basic cholesterol compounds in fat cells can get changed into a type of weak estrogen called estrone. Overweight or obese women carrying extra fat cells have "little estrone-making factories, which have an estrogenic effect on glands," explains Maria Arias, MD, a gynecologist at Atlanta Women's Specialists in Georgia.

A woman may go months without ovulating, for example, but the uterine lining is still accumulating - to the point that it becomes unstable.

Losing weight can affect your menstrual cycle But how much weight does that mean?

Being skinny, or losing a lot of weight, shouldn't affect your menstrual cycle unless it's a very drastic change. When you become very skinny, your body decides that it's 'not fit' to have a baby, so it halts the production of eggs, and hence the uterine lining, which is what you shed (blood) during menstruation. No eggs, not uterine lining, no period. So unless you lost A LOT of weight and were OVERLY active, odds are you wouldn't have any problems.
