Menstrual regularity is a point of pride with many females, but only a handful of women fall into this category these days. Abnormalities of the monthly cycle are very common and a wide range of menstrual irregularities are faced by women all over the world.

We shall cover one such irregularity at a time. Today's topic is Amenorrhea.  

Amenorrhea is the absence of menstruation. It may be of 2 types Primary and Secondary.

Primary Amenorrhea – It is the absence of menses and secondary sexual characteristics like breast development and pubic hair in a girl until the age of 16 years.

Secondary Amenorrhea – It is the absence of menses in women who have been menstruating earlier but stops for more than a couple months later. Absence of menstruation during pregnancy is not counted as secondary amenorrhea, menopause is also ruled out.

Symptoms of Amenorrhea –

Milk production in women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding.

Increased hair growth.

Vaginal dryness.

Hot flashes and night sweating.

Noticeable weight gain or loss may be seen.


If you have any of the above symptoms in addition to absence of menstruation, please meet your gynecologist as soon as possible because the absence of menstruation is just a symptom which may be caused by an underlying problem.
