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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Healthy women, below 38 years old, with normal follicular status at day 3 of the menstrual cycle, have AMH levels of 2.0 - 6.8 ng/ml (14.28 - 48.55 pmol/L). High levels are found in patients with PCOD. So you are normal.

Hi lybrate-user. 1. Menses gets affected by things like food ; stress ; emotional upset etc to start with. 2. If it so then you should await menses and you wil get your menses normally. 3. If any medication which interfers with menses can also delay it. 4. There is no immediate way to get your menses 5. Either you await menses for about 4-5 days if you think something is like mentioned in point 1.6. If not take tab primilut n one tab daily for 5 days and then stop. You wil get your menses 5-7 days aftet stoppi g the tablet. 7. If this is a recurrent condition get urself evaluated further. Thanks a lot.

My Age is 24 now, for the first time in 2014 when I was passing urine I felt like urgent to urinate at last blood drops came out of urine and immediately I consulted general physician he gave some medicines and all set. After 6 months I faced blood in urine again and I went to same physician he gave me some medicines and I asked what it could be he said heat. Finally in 2015 again blood came after urinating and this time I went to an urologist he said kidney stones and I asked how are you saying sir? He replied if blood came in urine for aged like 60 it is cancer and for young it is kidney stones and gave me medicines. Finally in 2016 again in January I faced the same problem and this time I thought to end up this and I went to Tulasi multi speciality hospital which is in my insurance network hospital. I said this same he said go with usg scanning there no kidney stones found, and sent me to RGU X ray. And I observed from the last year I don't know whether it was urine or water stool coming out of anus that happened only 10 days last year and this years but water will only one time or two times. I searched in Internet water coming out of anus my search founded fistula and in the same hospital I said about this too he said that must be a watery stool, because if it is happening occasionally and he said you have urethra structure and you have to go to Colonoscopy procedure. If you have doubt go to Gastrology department I went to Gastrology doctor. He put on his glouse and inserted finger and checked but Said no fistula go again for MRI pelvic scan I went to Vijaya diagnostics again no fistula in reports and Gastrology department said the same. Finally urologist said lets us go with cystroscopy. My question is does urethra procedure leads to UTI and then why some times water coming is it due to any pelvic masculine defect? What it might me?

Hello, The concept of conceiving or getting pregnant does not depend only on your wife. There is no test to detect whether a woman can get pregnant or not. And as well there is no test to detect whether a man can make a woman conceive or not. Hence, the so called pregnancy I.e. Getting pregnant depends on no. Of factors and that corresponds to both husband and wife. Woman cannot have a child alone. Her husband is also held responsible while having a child. Kind Regards.

Hello, the pregnancy test is negative and hence you may opt for a withdrawal bleed with progesterone tabs.

Surgery remains as the only option if hymen was surely torn during the first act of intercourse. In a few it might be intact due to its elasticity. So evaluation should be done before deciding.

Gallbladder Removal Surgery - Why Laparoscopy Is A Better Option?

MS - General Surgery, FMAS.Laparoscopy
General Surgeon, Gandhinagar
Gallbladder Removal Surgery - Why Laparoscopy Is A Better Option?

What is Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal Surgery (Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy)?

Gallbladder removal is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures. Gallbladder removal surgery is usually performed with minimally invasive techniques and the medical name for this procedure is Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy or Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal.

The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that rests beneath the right side of the liver. Its main purpose is to collect and concentrate a digestive liquid (bile) produced by the liver. Bile is released from the gallbladder after eating, aiding digestion. Bile travels through narrow tubular channels (bile ducts) into the small intestine. Removal of the gallbladder is not associated with any impairment of digestion in most people.

What Causes Gallbladder Problems?

Gallbladder problems are usually caused by the presence of gallstones which are usually small and hard, consisting primarily of cholesterol and bile salts that form in the gallbladder or in the bile duct.

It is uncertain why some people form gallstones but risk factors include being female, prior pregnancy, age over 40 years and being overweight. Gallstones are also more common as you get older and some people may have a family history of gallstones. There is no known means to prevent gallstones.

These stones may block the flow of bile out of the gallbladder, causing it to swell and resulting in sharp abdominal pain, vomiting, indigestion and, occasionally, fever. If the gallstone blocks the common bile duct, jaundice (a yellowing of the skin) can occur.

Diagnosing 

  1. Ultrasound is most commonly used to find gallstones.
  2. In a few more complex cases, other X-ray test such as a CT scan or a gallbladder nuclear medicine scan may be used to evaluate gallbladder disease.

Gallstones do not go away on their own. Some can be temporarily managed by making dietary adjustments, such as reducing fat intake. This treatment has a low, short-term success rate. Symptoms will eventually continue unless the gallbladder is removed. Treatments to break up or dissolve gallstones are largely unsuccessful.

Surgical removal of the gallbladder is the time-honored and safest treatment of gallbladder disease.

What are the Advantages of Performing Laparoscopic Gallbladder Removal?

  1. Rather than a five to seven inch incision, the operation requires only four small openings in the abdomen.
  2. Patients usually have minimal post-operative pain.
  3. Patients usually experience faster recovery than open gallbladder surgery patients.
  4. Most patients go home the same day of the surgery and enjoy a quicker return to normal activities.

Are you a Candidate?

Although there are many advantages to laparoscopic gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy), the procedure may not be appropriate for some patients who have severe complicated gallbladder disease or previous upper abdominal surgery. A thorough medical evaluation by your personal physician, in consultation with a surgeon trained in laparoscopy, can determine if laparoscopic gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) is an appropriate procedure for you.
