WHAT IS AMENORRHEA/MENSTRUAL DISORDERS

Amenorrhea, which can be primary or secondary, is the absence of menstrual bleeding.

Primary amenorrheais either the absence of menstrual bleeding with normal development of secondary sexual characteristics in a girl by the age of 16 or the absence of menstrual bleeding and secondary sexual characteristics (such as pubic hair and breast development) in a girl by the age of 14.

Secondary amenorrheais the absence of menstrual bleeding in a woman who had been menstruating but later stops for three or more months without becoming pregnant, being able to breastfeed, having her cycle suppressed by birth control pills, or going through menopause.

Amenorrhea Causes

Amenorrhea may be brought on by a problem with the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, genital tract anatomical issues, or functional reasons.

Hypothalamic causes

  • A brain tumor close to the pituitary gland is known as a craniopharyngioma.
  • Nutritional deficiency
  • Low body weight

Pituitary causes

  • Prolactinoma, a tumor of the pituitary gland that secretes prolactin, may be the cause of prolactinemia, which is high blood levels of the hormone prolactin, which stimulates milk secretion from the breasts during breastfeeding.
  • Pituitary cells dying after a woman gives birth is known as postpartum pituitary necrosis.

Functional causes

    • Anorexia/bulimia
      • such as tuberculosis) are long-lasting diseases
      • weight loss or gain that is excessive
      • Malnutrition
      • Psychiatric conditions like depression
      • Recreational drug abuse
      • Use of psychotropic drugs, which are those that are prescribed to help stabilize or improve mood, mental health, or behavior.
      • Excessive exercise
      • Using birth control pills with systemic hormones, cycle suppression.

Amenorrhea Symptoms

      • headache, reduced peripheral vision, or galactorrhea (the production of milk by breasts in non-pregnant or non-breastfeeding women).
        • A hormone called excess androgen, which promotes the development of male sex traits, may be the cause of increased hair growth in a male pattern, or hirsutism.
        • The symptoms of ovarian insufficiency or early ovarian failure may include vaginal dryness, hot flashes, night sweats, or disturbed sleep.
        • There could have been an obvious weight gain or loss.
        • Women who also have coexisting psychiatric disorders may experience excessive anxiety.

Menorrahagia

Clinically, menorrhagia is defined as total blood loss exceeding 80 ml per cycle or menses lasting longer than 7 days. Menorrhagia is one of the most common gynecologic complaints in modern gynecology and is characterized by menstruation at regular cycle intervals but with excessive flow and duration.

Causes of Menorrhagia

      • Deficiencies in Coagulation Leading to Menorrhagia
        • Menorrhagia may also be brought on by hormonal imbalance.

        • Miscarriage induced Menorrhagia

        • Menorrhagia due to IUCD

          If your periods have gotten heavier after using a loop, that may be a side effect of the same, as are other intrauterine contraceptive methods like Copper-T.

        • Fibroids causing Menorrhagia

          Fibroids—noncancerous uterine tumors—should be taken into account if your periods are painful and getting heavier.

        • Menorrhagia may also result from stress and psychological upsets.

        • Other sporadic causes of heavy bleeding include domestic strife, marital discord, excessive anxiety, stress, and tension.

        • On occasion, vaginal bleeding and bleeding caused by piles in the anus can be confused.

Spotting, Intermenstrual Bleeding, Breakthrough Bleeding, Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding, and Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding are some terms used to describe bleeding between periods.

Unusual uterine bleeding that is unrelated to menstruation, typically in females without a regular menstrual cycle, and that is unpredictable, irregular, and irregularly heavy.

MEDICAL CAUSES

  • CervicitisAssessment reveals red, granular, irregular lesions on the external cervix, purulent vaginal discharge (with or without odor), lower abdominal pain, and fever may occur. It may cause spontaneous bleeding, spotting, or posttraumatic bleeding.
  • Dysfunctional uterine bleedingMetrorrhagia is the term used to describe abnormal uterine bleeding that is not related to menstruation, major gynecologic disorders, or pregnancy, although menorrhagia is also possible.
  • Endometrial polypsThe majority of patients with endometrial polyps experience abnormal bleeding, typically during or after menopause, but some do not experience any symptoms.
  • EndometriosisA tender, fixed adnexal mass may be palpable on bimanual examination, and metrorrhagia (typically premenstrual) may be the only sign of endometriosis or it may also be present in conjunction with cyclical pelvic pain, infertility, and dyspareunia.
  • EndometritisIt also results in fever, lower abdominal pain, and abdominal muscle spasms, as well as metrorrhagia, purulent vaginal discharge, and uterus enlargement.
  • Gynecologic cancerLater, the patient may experience weight loss, pelvic pain, fatigue, and possibly an abdominal mass. Metrorrhagia is frequently an early sign of cervical or uterine cancer.
  • Uterine leiomyomasThe patient may report pain if the uterus attempts to expel the tumor through contractions and if the tumors twist or necrose after circulatory occlusion or infection, but the patient with leiomyomas is typically asymptomatic. In addition to metrorrhagia, uterine leiomyomas may cause increasing abdominal girth and heaviness in the abdomen, constipation, and urinary frequency or urgency.

Vaginal adenosisWhen affected vaginal areas are palpated, nodules or roughening are visible.

EXAMS AND TESTS FOR MENSTRUAL DISORDERS

  • The levels of the pituitary gland’s hormones (FSH, LH, TSH, and prolactin) and the ovaries’ hormones (estrogen) can be assessed through blood tests.
  • It is possible to perform pelvic ultrasonography to check for polycystic ovaries or to evaluate genital tract abnormalities.
  • Pituitary and hypothalamic causes of amenorrhea can be ruled out with a CT scan or MRI of the head.
  • Thyroid function tests
  • Determination of prolactin levels
  • Both saline infusion sonography (SIS) and the hysterosalpingogram (x-ray test), which both look at the uterus
  • The uterine cavity can be seen during a hysteroscopy.

HOMEOPATHY TREATMENT FOR MENSTRUAL DISORDERS:

Homeopathic treatment involves a careful assessment of each patient’s precise symptoms, the selection of a single remedy that precisely matches the nuances of each individual disease case, and the administration of the remedy to balance the body’s various systems that maintain health.

Menstrual disorders general prevention strategies:

Before seeing a doctor, a patient should consider the following general actions:

  • Bed rest
  • Avoid over exertion
  • No vigorous exercise
  • Cold showers
  • Avoid anxiety and tension

If the issue has been present for a long time, homeopathic remedies are effective in treating these chronic menstrual problems and can prevent the disease from returning.
