Amenorrhea: Clinical Features & Treatment

Amenorrhea refers to the absence of menstrual periods in women of reproductive age and can be classified as either primary or secondary. Clinical features of amenorrhea may include hot flashes, vaginal dryness, breast changes, headaches, and hair loss, depending on the underlying cause such as hormonal imbalances, stress, or anatomical abnormalities. Diagnosis involves a thorough medical history, physical examination, and tests including hormone levels (e.g., FSH, LH, estradiol, thyroid function tests) and imaging studies (e.g., ultrasound, MRI). Treatment depends on the cause and may include lifestyle modifications, hormone replacement therapy, medications to induce ovulation, or surgical intervention in cases of structural abnormalities. Management aims to address underlying factors, restore menstrual function, and address any associated symptoms or complications of amenorrhea. Regular follow-up and monitoring are essential to assess treatment efficacy and address any new concerns or changes in symptoms.
