The female athlete triad is a series of events in athletes' lives that starts with the development of disordered eating. Disordered eating can lead into amenorrhea, or loss of menses. Loss of menses can cause females to develop early osteoporosis, and thus forming the final component of the female athlete triad. I will review past research that has been done on the female athlete triad, and then take an in-depth look at the current athletes at NCAA Division I and Division II institutions through a combined survey/questionnaire.
