In brief: Yes
It may be hard to get pregnant with anorexia if your weight is low.
It is best if your eating disorder is under good control prior to getting pregnant since good nutrition and appropriate weight gain are important during pregnancy. Once you are pregnant, you should stay in contact with your therapist since the body changes of pregnancy can set you back.
