A 26-Year-Old Woman with Secondary Amenorrhea!!
A 26-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of secondary amenorrhea. .Her menarche occurred at the age of 14 years, when her weight was 50.9 kg and her height 160 cm. Her first two menses were irregular, but subsequent menstrual periods were regular and consisted of 5 days of flow, with a 35-day menstrual interval. Most of her menses were preceded by a mild backache and increased appetite, without bloating or breast tenderness. How to treat this secondary amenorrhea?
@bishwajit The treatment for amenorrhea depends on the underlying cause, as well as the health status and goals of the individual. If primary or secondary amenorrhea is caused by lifestyle factors, your health care provider may suggest changes in the areas below:
• Weight. Being overweight or severely underweight can affect your menstrual cycle. Attaining and maintaining a healthy weight often helps balance hormone levels and restore your menstrual cycle.
• Stress. Assess the areas of stress in your life and reduce the things that are causing stress. If you can't decrease stress on your own, ask for help from family, friends, your health care provider, or a professional listener such as a counsellor.
• Level of physical activity. You may need to change or adjust your physical activity level to help restart your menstrual cycle. Talk to your health care provider and your coach or trainer about how to train in a way that maintains your health and menstrual cycles.
Be aware of changes in your menstrual cycle and check with your health care provider if you have concerns. Keep a record of when your periods occur. Note the date your period starts, how long it lasts, and any problems you experience. The first day of bleeding is considered the first day of your menstrual cycle.
