Symptoms and Causes of Amenorrhea

MBBS
Sexologist, Jaipur
Symptoms and Causes of Amenorrhea

Amenorrhea is a condition when a woman of childbearing age fails to menstruate. A woman normally menstruates every 23 to 35 days.The part of the brain called the hypothalamus regulates the menstrual cycle. The hypothalamus stimulates the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland lies just below the hypothalamus at the base of the brain.

There are two types of amenorrhea:

  1. Primary amenorrhea occurs when a woman has not had her first menstrual period (menarche) by age 15 or 16. This condition is also called delayed menarche. It is most often due to late puberty.This is fairly common in teenage girls who are very thin or very athletic. These young women are typically underweight.
  2. Secondary types of amenorrhea occurs when a woman has experienced menstrual periods, but stops menstruating for three or more consecutive months.

Secondary amenorrhea can be caused by:

  1. Pregnancy (the most common cause)
  2. Breast feeding
  3. Menopause, the normal age-related end of menstruation
  4. Emotional or physical stress
  5. Rapid weight loss
  6. Frequent strenuous exercise
  7. Hormonal birth control methods, including birth control pills, the patch and long acting progesterone.
  8. Polycystic ovary syndrome, a condition is associated with a tendency to be overweight, excessive body and facial hair and hormonal irregularities.
  9. Premature ovarian failure (menopause before age 40)
  10. Hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus)
  11. Abnormal production of certain hormones, such as testosterone, thyroid and cortisone.
  12. Tumors of the pituitary gland
  13. Chemotherapy

Symptoms of Amenorrhea:
Hormone imbalances may cause amenorrhea together with:

  1. Excess body and facial hair
  2. Acne
  3. Lowering of the voice
  4. Altered sex drive
  5. Breast milk secretions
  6. Weight gain

In order to diagnose your condition your doctor will ask you about:

  1. The date of your last menstrual period
  2. Whether you are sexually active
  3. Your birth control methods
  4. Your pregnancy history
  5. Your eating habits
  6. Rapid weight changes
  7. Obesity or extreme underweight
  8. Your typical monthly menstrual patterns
  9. The age when your mother entered menopause(In most cases it has been seen that, both mother and daughter will enter menopause at the same age) 
  10. The amount of stress in your life and how you deal with it
  11. The types of medications you are taking

Treatment for amenorrhea:
The treatment for secondary amenorrhea varies depending on the underlying cause of your condition. Hormonal imbalances can be treated with supplemental or synthetic hormones. Your doctor may also want to remove ovarian cysts, scar tissue or uterine adhesions that are causing you to miss your menstrual periods.

Sometimes women can have irregular periods soon after giving birth. You can wait for 2-3 months to see if it regularises. However I would advice you to use an effective contraception as well.

I have 3 months baby. I m breastfeeding my baby. What I should eat to get more milk for my baby through breastfeeding?

I have 3 months baby. I m breastfeeding my baby. What I should eat to get more milk for my baby through breastfeeding?
More suckling is the key to more milk. Putting the baby more frequently to the breast would help in making more milk. Expressing milk with hands or with a breastpump after every feed would also help. Along with this, a nutritious diet for the mothet and plenty of water is all that you require.

Hi, If you are not pregnant, other causes of missed or irregular periods include: Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems. Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia. For more information, see the topic Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia Nervosa. Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes. Emotional stress. Illness. Travel. Medicines such as birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods or no periods at all. Hormone problems. This may cause a change in the levels of the hormones that the body needs to support menstruation. Illegal drug use. Problems with the pelvic organs, such as imperforate hymen, polycystic ovary syndrome, or Asherman's syndrome. Breast-feeding. Many women do not resume regular periods until they have completed breast-feeding. Other diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, tuberculosis, liver disease, and diabetes can cause missed or irregular periods, although this is rare. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to Menstrual problem/ irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication – Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. ************Visit a nearby gynaecologist for physical examination******

Uphaston is a progesterone hormone. It is safe for women wanting to conceive. It regularises periods and is a pregnancy support hormone for the first few months. If you your period fails to come after stopping the medicine then please do a urine pregnancy test.

Gentle massage with any oil will help, plus stretching exercises to tone up the muscles, weights, rowing, swimming & yoga exercises. But she will never have previous shape, keep weight under check and make exercise a routine.

Three studies by Natural Body Care confirm the stick’s gynecological benefits when used regularly.

Gooseberries These berries help restore the vagina’s elasticity and suppleness within a short period. All you have to do is boil some in water and store the solution. Proceed to apply the solution to your private parts when taking a bath. Witch Hazel This herb also helps tighten the vaginal muscles. You just need to grind the herb into powder form and use it to wash the genitals once a week consistently. Other forms of exercises You may also consider exploring other forms of exercises that target the pelvic muscles. Such include yoga and pilates that tighten the pelvic muscles by strengthening one’s core. Healthy Diet The muscles in the body, overall, require food for proper growth and repair.
