No Menstruation For 5 Months.?
Hello, how come I haven’t menstruated? It’s been 5 months. I am 16 years old. Does the weight factor also affect? Because my weight is only 45kg with a height of 165cm
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
I understand the concern you feel. First of all, it is necessary to distinguish between late menstruation and never menstruation at all. Late menstruation for more than 3 months (where previously the menstrual cycle was normal) is medically called amenorrhea, which can be caused by several conditions or certain diseases, including:
Pregnancy But if you have never had sex before, this possibility you can get rid of.
Stress. Is the most common cause experienced in teens in their teens, due to stress about problems at school or at home. This can change the pattern of hormone production from the brain, which results in changes in menstrual patterns.
Poor nutrition, because hormone production requires certain raw materials, such as cholesterol, etc., so the lack of nutrients can interfere with hormone production and also disrupt the menstrual cycle. Although it does not directly cause menstrual disorders, poor weight indicates poor nutritional status.
The effects of some drugs, such as birth control pills, or other contraceptives
Excessive physical activity or exercise
Overweight, or obese
PCOS, which is a disorder that causes hormonal imbalances in the body
Thyroid hormone abnormalities
As for some things you can do right now at home are:
Eat nutritious foods, with balanced nutritional levels, between carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and minerals and vitamins.
Get enough rest, at least 6-8 hours per day
Drink enough water
Perform regular physical activity, but not excessive.
I advise you to check with a general practitioner or obstetrician and obstetrician, so that a more complete examination can be done to ascertain your condition, and if necessary given appropriate treatment.
So, hopefully you can help.
