Menstruation Comes Out When Taking Regular Medication?
Good evening, I am 24 years old, I had menstrual disorders from the start, so I never had periods at all. I have consulted with a doctor, and it is recommended to take Regumen medicine, and it is true 2 or 3 days after consuming 1 piece of the drug, I could menstruate. But if I don’t consume Regumen, I won’t menstruate. well I want to ask for an explanation if I suffer from PCOS (because my doctor said I have diabetes seeds and dense leg hair)? is there a solution because I’m afraid of dependency? and is the regime safe if consumed continuously?
Hello Darrul Nisa, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Never menstruate even though you have reached the age of 16 years or more is called primary amenorrhea. The most common cause of primary amenorrhea is hormonal disorders, because the ovaries produce very little of the female reproductive hormone, estrogen, progesterone or both. The conditions causing this are quite a lot, including:
Androgen hormone excesses (eg PCOS) Hormoneonadotropin deficiency releasing hormones produced in the brain Disorders of growth and development or congenital abnormalities Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia Disturbances in the pituitary gland in the brain Prolactin hormone excess Adrenal disorders
To find out if you have PCOS or not need further tests, even though there are symptoms that are seen or felt such as being overweight, irregular menstruation, acne, baldness or darker skin.
Because the causes are so many and difficult to know without a careful examination, you should consult directly with your obstetrician. Your obstetrician can examine you by ultrasound examination and blood tests such as thyroid function tests, androgen hormone testing, the hormone prolactin and so on.
If you do have PCOS, your doctor will give you appropriate medicines and various suggestions for increasing insulin sensitivity including exercise, achieving ideal body weight and eating healthy foods. If the cause is hormonal disorders, your doctor will give hormonal therapy, for example using birth control pills, or hormonal drugs that you are taking.
