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.

I am 2 months pregnant. I ate King Mackerel fish (seer fish or vanjaram fish) during lunch today (approx 200 grams). Only after I ate it, I happened to see in internet that it is bad for baby due to high mercury levels. Now, what can be done to reverse the effect of that? Is it something serious to worry about?

Is wife pregnant or not. We have taken home pregnancy test but second line appering lightly . Please advise

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Hello, If you have taken the test after 7 days post missed period then the urine pregnancy test is sensitive. If you are seeing a faint second line then it suggests that she may be pregnant , however the test needs to be repeated again after 72 hrs by a urine pregnancy test. For early confirmation , you should opt for a blood serum beta hcg test which depending on the hcg levels can confirmatively give a positive or a negative result. Regards

Sexologist, Howrah
premenstrual syndrome
nearly all women suffers some mood changes/breast pain/abdominal pain/hot flushes headache, fatigue, insomnia, bloating, uncontrollable food cravings, irritability, depression, feelings of loneliness, rejection … days just before their periods. sexual desires also changes in those days. so, irritation/ feel of unsatisfaction wipe off the peace of mind..
its due to sex hormone changes in your body during that time mainly estrogen & FSH.
try to control your emotion by doing yoga- it acts like miracle. eyes closed & deep breathing in & out in the early morning makes you calm & control your sex steroid releasing hormones through hypothalamus.slow body twisting improves your circulation in lower abdominal organs.
for abdominal/breast pain-try to use home remedies like cold compress/ cold cod oil massage.
diet- raw onion and pumpkin seeds. flaxseed oil, evening primrose oil lavender and tea in the evening. try to have vegetables and fish- avoid meats.
**do not let your hormones to control your mind**
in severe cases, you may need medicines, consult your physician- we are always their to solve your problems.

dont know what is 3 week pregnancy.. to be proved pregnant and get a positive pregnsncy test one has to be overdue by minimal 4 weeks. Btw papaya has plant hormones thus avoided in pregnacy to avoid preterm labour or foetal loss, but it is not a proved abortifacient. So you should not vouch upon it to help you.

A woman gets pregnancy when she had intercourse with her husband at the time when her egg rupture and sperms reaches the ovaries at the same time and fertilization takes place. This time varies from person to person depending on your cycle, egg formation start from 7th or 8th day of periods, like if your periods start on 1st of any month, then gradually increase in size and rupture. It varies in every individual women. So roughly your fertile period is from 8th day of periods till 20th day, it can be any day, so you need to have intercourse every alternate day during this time. So there will be maximum chances of conception.

Me ane my wife use to have sex without condom as we both won't like using it but m fed up of ejaculating outside. Can you please tell me the days when its safe to ejaculate inside her?

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Sexual intercourse averages two minutes, usually ending as the male partner reaches climax. However, a woman requires eight to twelve minutes of constant stimulation to reach climax. Premature ejaculation is the number one cause for shortened sex. For further assistance you can concern me privately.
