Secondary amenorrhea: There are several ways to treat secondary amenorrhea, but first one would need laboratory tests to diagnose the cause. Menopause, thyroid disease and pregnancy are two common causes of secondary amenorrhea, and can be diagnosed with a physical exam and blood tests.

Hormone challenge: The first step would be to perform a full history and physical exam at the gyn md's office, and rule out pregnancy. If there is no pregnancy, attempt to determine the cause by an initial Progesterone challenge with a pill for 10 days to "induce withdrawal bleeding". If that fails, other studies may be done including a pelvic ultrasound and ancillary blood testing..
