Amenorrhoea symptoms

If your menstrual cycle deviates from its usual pattern, this may be a sign of amenorrhoea. It is essential to be aware of such changes.


It's essential to consult with a doctor if you've experienced a cessation in your menstrual cycle and have received a negative result on a pregnancy test.

What causes Amenorrhoea?

Your period can be delayed, missed, or different from usual for various reasons. The most frequent culprits are:


  • Pregnancy – If you've engaged in recent sexual activity, contraceptive methods might not have been effective.

  • Contraception – Certain forms of contraception can lead to irregular or absent periods.

  • Stress – Excessive stress can impact your physical health, including your menstrual cycle, causing irregular periods.

  • Overweight – Being overweight or obese can disrupt hormonal balance and delay or halt your menstrual cycle due to excessive estrogen production.

  • Underweight – Severe calorie restriction or intense exercise can lead to hormonal imbalances affecting your menstrual cycle.

  • Menopause – Cessation of periods is a natural aspect of menopause and could be an early indicator. Menopause typically begins around age 45.

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) – Affecting about 1 in 10 women, this condition inhibits the release of eggs from the ovaries.
