Amenorrhea

This is a condition in which menstruation has not begun in girls over 18 years of age,
or with menstruation discontinued over three months in women having regular
menstruation in the past.

Amenorrhea in modern medicine can be divided into primary and secondary types.
The latter type is secondary to various diseases which should be properly
administered to specific treatment. The cessation of menstruation in pregnant and
breast-feeding women is a normal phenomenon and not included in pathological
amenorrhea. Amenorrhea in patients with congenital absence of uterus, ovaries, or
vagina and imperforate hymen is due to special organic lesions and cannot be cured
by hand therapy.
