Well, I have no idea if you are overweight because you didn't state your weight. The best way to find out is to do a web search for BMI. That's Body Mass Index. It gives a general healthy guideline for weight based on height and age. That will let you know if you are within healthy levels for your age and height.

No. In fact, your periods are usually heavier if you're overweight. Violet Actually, yes, but you have to be very overweight or morbidly obese.
