Hard to say: Primary amenorrhea is a simple term meaning you have never had a period.It does not provide a clue as to why. It is suggestive of various abnormalities of the female reproductive system that may include lack of a womb. If you have ovaries and no womb, you might be able to have a baby using assisted reproduction and a surragate.
