Background. Symptom fluctuation in bulimia nervosa (BN) is related to menstrual cycle phase. However, the relationship between bulimic symptoms and ovarian hormones (estrogens and progesterone) has not been examined directly in women with BN. Method. Regularly menstruating women with DSM-IV BN (n=9) and regularly menstruating controls (n=8) collected hormone samples and recorded mood and bulimic symptoms daily for 35 consecutive days. Estradiol and progesterone were measured by radioimmunoassay… 
Associations between ovarian hormones and emotional eating across the menstrual cycle: Do ovulatory shifts in hormones matter?
TLDR
In aggregate, the current findings and past data suggest that hormone levels are more significant predictors of EE than pronounced hormonal changes across the menstrual cycle.
Ovarian hormones and binge eating: exploring associations in community samples
TLDR
Associations between ovarian hormones and binge eating are robust and present in clinical and non-clinical samples and support the ability to examine the role of ovarian hormones as risk factors for binge eating in large-scale prospective studies and twin studies.
The effects of ovarian hormones and emotional eating on changes in weight preoccupation across the menstrual cycle.
TLDR
Weight preoccupation varied significantly across the menstrual cycle, with the highest levels in the premenstrual and menstrual phases, and the most significant predictor of menstrual cycle changes in weightPreoccupation was the change in emotional eating.
Differential associations between ovarian hormones and disordered eating symptoms across the menstrual cycle in women.
TLDR
Levels of body dissatisfaction and drive for thinness were highest during the mid-luteal/pre-menstrual phases in both studies and were negatively associated with estradiol, and positively associated with progesterone.
Gonadal Hormones are Associated with Body Shape and Symptoms of Disordered Eating in Women
TLDR
Body dissatisfaction and drive for thinness peaked during the midluteal phase of the cycle, and both measures were negatively associated with estradiol but positively associated with progesterone.

TLDR
Strong associations between dysregulated eating and ovarian hormones in women with BEs as compared to women without BEs were revealed and the nature of associations differed, as progesterone moderated the effects of lower estradiol levels on dys regulated eating in womenwith BEs only.
Ovarian hormones influence eating disorder symptom variability during the menopause transition: A pilot study.
TLDR
Results are broadly consistent with the young adult literature indicating that P4 levels shape the impact of E2 on eating disorder symptoms, and larger studies with the inclusion of key moderators to account for individual heterogeneity are needed to confirm and extend these findings.
Stress and eating disorder behavior in anorexia nervosa as a function of menstrual cycle status.
TLDR
Results suggest that changes in stress severity in response to food restriction may differ based on ovarian hormonal status and may be a mechanism by which anorexia nervosa is maintained in individuals without menstrual disturbance.
The interactive effects of estrogen and progesterone on changes in emotional eating across the menstrual cycle.
TLDR
Examining ovarian hormone interactions in the prediction of within-subject changes in emotional eating in the largest sample of women to date confirmed that changes in ovarian hormones predict changes inotional eating across the menstrual cycle, with a significant estradiol × progesterone interaction.
Stress as a potential moderator of ovarian hormone influences on binge eating in women
TLDR
Overall, current evidence suggests that associations between hormones and BE may be stronger in women with high stress levels, possibly via altered hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis response to stress and increased sensitivity to and altered effects of ovarian hormones during stress.

Symptom fluctuation in bulimia nervosa: relation to menstrual-cycle phase and cortisol levels
TLDR
Bulimic symptom fluctuation appears to be related to two hormonal phenomena – phase of the menstrual cycle and cortisol secretion – with menstrual-cycle phase influencing bulimia symptom severity, and bulimic symptoms severity effecting increases in cortisol secretion.
Menstrual cycle irregularity in bulimia nervosa. Associated factors and changes with treatment.
TLDR
Menstrual irregularity in BN is associated with indices of nutritional restriction that are not reflected by low body weight or energy intake and depression, cigarette smoking and fluctuations in body weight may act as metabolic stresses that contribute to the perpetuation of menstrual disturbances.
Preliminary evidence that gonadal hormones organize and activate disordered eating
TLDR
Findings suggest that lower levels of prenatal testosterone exposure and higher adult levels of estradiol are associated with increased eating disorder symptoms, and it is hypothesized that the relatively low level of testosterone before birth in females permits their brains to respond to estrogens at puberty.
Long-term menstrual and reproductive function in patients with bulimia nervosa.
TLDR
It is suggested that while menstrual irregularities are common, bulimia nervosa appears to have little impact on later ability to achieve pregnancy.

Ovulatory dysfunction is common in patients with eating disorders. However, many women engage in pathologic dieting behaviors without meeting the current diagnostic criteria for anorexia or bulimia
Effects of ovarian hormones on eating behaviors, body weight, and glucoregulation in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
The influences of ovarian hormones on food intake, taste preferences, and glucoregulation were examined in intact and ovariectomized rhesus monkeys, and the suggestion that fluctuations in caloric intake during the menstrual cycle are secondary to changes in taste preference or glucOREgulation is not supported.

Premenstrual exacerbation of binge eating in bulimia.
TLDR
There was a modest but statistically significant premenstrual exacerbation of binge eating in 15 normal-weight women with bulimia whose eating behavior had been unaffected by placebo treatment during a medication study.
Comparison of salivary steroid profiles in naturally occurring conception and non-conception cycles.
TLDR
Findings indicate that variation in follicular development, reflected in variationIn follicular oestradiol concentrations, is an important indicator of fecundity.
Progesterone and estradiol in the saliva and plasma during the menstrual cycle.
TLDR
Both plasma and salivary progesterone levels increased in a dose-dependent manner after an intramuscular injection of progester one, with peak levels being attained from 2 to 3 hours after the injection, and the potential use of it as an index of ovulation is discussed.
