How amenorrhea can affect your health?

Amenorrhea is when there is no menstruation. Temporary or permanent. Amenorrhea can result from altered function or some problems with the female reproductive system.

Menstruation may not be scheduled, such as before puberty, during pregnancy, or after menopause. If amenorrhea persists for more than three months, it should be investigated.

Symptoms


The main symptom is the lack of menstruation.

However, other symptoms may occur depending on the cause.

These include:

  • Nipple discharge
  • Hair loss
  • headache
  • Changes in eyesight
  • Additional facial hair

In people with primary amenorrhea, breast development may be defective.

Treatment

If your period has stopped due to menopause or pregnancy, your healthcare provider does not need to treat your period. In other cases, your treatment depends on the cause and may include:

  • Weight loss (if overweight) due to diet or exercise.
  • Gain weight with a personalized diet plan (if it is due to excessive weight loss).
  • Stress management technology.
  • Changing the exercise level.
  • A healthcare provider prescribes hormone therapy (pharmacotherapy).
  • Surgery (rarely).

In addition, your healthcare provider may recommend several treatments to help with the side effects of amenorrhea:

  • Estrogen therapy to relieve hot flashes and vaginal dryness.
  • Calcium and Vitamin D supplements keep your bones strong.
  • Strength training.

Amenorrhea can be a symptom of anorexia nervosa, an eating disorder. If you or your loved one is in this condition, contact your healthcare provider immediately so that you can receive appropriate treatment.
