I have been told to get a vitamin because I am having metabolic issues and I have a zinc tablet but I dont know if I need to get another or something else. I was having issues with my period and found out that I was getting it but weaker than I should because my body was having trouble ovulating due to me being underweight. So, because my body is trying to work right but cant, I have been told that I need a vitamin: Does anyone have a suggestion or a link to a website with a quiz or vitamin filter/finder?

There are some formulated for teen girls. That is what we used.

Your doctor would be the best one to advise on how to both gaining the weight healthily and recommend a vitamin suited for your condition.

Here is a link to our Find a Vitamin information.
