Question: Purging or Non-purging?

I looked around in the memories for this, but since it is more of a personal question, i didn't find anything....
Righto, i fit all of the criteria for Bulimia nervosa, but i'm unsure as whether i would be classified as a 'purging' or 'non-purging'. I'll give you some information about my behaviours;

Some weeks, i may binge and purge (vomit or laxatives) over 4 times a week. Other weeks, i'll binge and fast or excessively exercise. I guess in a given week i would tend to fast the binge off more, but would that classify me as non-purging because i still purge?


Purging type: During the current episode of bulimia nervosa, the person has regularly engaged in self-induced vomiting or the misuse of laxatives, diuretics or enemas.

Nonpurging type: During the current episode of bulimia nervosa, the person has used inappropriate compensatory behaviors, such as fasting or excessive exercise, but has not regularly engaged in self-induced vomiting or the misuse of laxatives, diuretics or enemas.
