Lack of periods: Amenorrhea refers to the condition of 'lacking menstrual periods'. The causes of amenorrhea can be broadly categorized into either 1. Ovarian/reproductive tract dysfunction (anatomic obstruction, pregnancy, menopause, pcos, androgen excess, or others) or 2. Pituitary/hypothalamic gland problems in brain (high prolactin, athletic amenorrhea, pituitary mass, traumatic injury to brain, etc).
