Secondary Amenorrhea

Posted by e-Medical PPT Monday, May 17, 2010
Amenorrhoea is the absence of a menstrual period in a woman of reproductive age. Physiological states of amenorrhoea are seen during pregnancy and lactation,the latter also forming the basis of a form of contraception known as the lactational amenorrhoea method.
Secondary amenorrhoea is often caused by hormonal disturbances from the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland or from premature menopause, or intrauterine scar formation. It is defined as the absence of menses for three months in a woman with previously normal menstruation or nine months for women with a history of oligomenorrhea.
