Hello Good Evening,
As you have issue of missed period frequently, which is due to some common reason like:
-Stress and anxiety
-Excessive weight loss
, or weight gain
Menopause is not applicable in this case and pregnancy should be rule out but any of rest of the others can be a cause for her missing period, so please go through proper evaluation to get other causes like hypothyroidism or PCOS.
PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome
) produces symptoms in approximately 5% to 10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 years old). It is thought to be one of the leading causes of female sub-fertility and the most frequent endocrine problem in women of reproductive age.
The principal features are anovulation, resulting in irregular menstruation
, amenorrhoea, ovulation-related infertility, and polycystic ovaries; excessive amounts or effects of androgenic (masculinizing) hormones, resulting in acne and hirsutism; and insulin resistance
, often associated with obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol
The symptoms and severity of the syndrome vary greatly among affected women.
So go for a USG, TSH and other investigation to find out the cause of frequent amenorrhoea.
