Unexpected weight loss and menstral concerns

Patient

Q: I have been over weight since around 11 or 12 I had just started gaining was very active I weighted a little over 300lbs a little over a year ago I started having sex alot more than I use to and now I've lost over 100 pounds and now im at around 187lbs it took maybe 5 or 6 months I dont know what has caused me to lose that weight but it concerns me because I did nothing out of the ordinary expect more sex could that be the cause of the weight lose? I am 27 went to a doctor when I was younger because of unusual periods may of had a period once or twice a year and now it my be every other month and to check on the weight gain the doctor checked my hormons and thyroid and said I was fine but why now are my periods almost normal and having a big weight loss?
