- Secondary amenorrhea: sudden interruption of the menstrual cycle for more than three months (pregnancy, menopause, serious illness, stress or psychological shock ...). During pregnancy, weeks of amenorrhea are counted to be more precise regarding the calendar of clinical examinations and formalities.

The precautions

- People at risk: those who already have irregular periods, anorexic or obese people, women who stop taking the birth control pill.

- Risk factors: prolonged stress, intense sporting activity, alcoholism or drug addiction problems.

- Complications: in most cases, amenorrhea is reversible and is easily cured (except, of course, in the case of amenorrhea due to menopause or ablation of the uterus and ovaries). Neglecting amenorrhea for a long time, however, can have important consequences on the mechanisms of reproduction.


-Medical: Consult a doctor and undergo some tests (pregnancy test, hormone dosage in the blood, etc.) will allow you to find out the cause of the amenorrhea and possibly resort to treatment.

- Hormonal: in the case of ovarian dysfunction, you will be offered hormonal treatment to help fertility and the development of the reproductive organs and, in the long term, to prevent osteoporosis.
