I need to know if can I get pregnant with primary amenorrhea?

Cannot; see a GYN.: If your brain isn't signalling for an egg release from your ovary, you won't have a signal for your periods either; that's usually the cause of amenorrhea. Often it's a hormonal imbalance--Thyroid, Prolactin, LH, FSH, Hcg should be checked. Your doctor can also induce a period as well w/ OCPs. If you've NEVER had a period, you should get an US to make sure you have normal uterus/vagina/ovaries. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant if I have secondary amenorrhea from stopping birth cotrol pills after 5 years?

Yes: Secondary amenorrhea can resolve itself at any time. You will ovulate prior to having your first period, so there will come a time when you are fertile, and you have no idea when that is! of course there are non-reversible causes of amenorrhea, like premature ovarian failure, that will never resolve, but they are unusual. Post pill amenorrhea usually resolves itself. ...Read more

How do u know if u have post pill amenorrhea? Can u still get pregnant during this time? Can a doc give you anything to help? Is it caused by stress?

Post-pil amenorrhea?: This means having no periods for a while - like months to over a year - after stopping bc pills. Women who had irregular periods before starting the pills are at greatest risk. You can get pregnant during the time of amenorrhea (no periods) if you ovulate and have unprotected sex. So be sure to use a "barrier method, " foam & condoms, etc., to protect yourself. Stress induced? Don't know. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I see an endocrinologist for amenorrhea? Haven't had a cycle since 19. I'm now 37 &  want to get pregnant. Insurance won't cover fertility special

May be it has to.: If you haven't had a period in almost 20 years, you will likely need help getting pregnant. Are you sure that your insurance won't cover fertility treatment? It varies from state to state, but many have laws requiring that health insurance policies cover fertility treatment. I recommend that you start by seeing a gynecologist and take it from there. I wish you the best. ...Read more

I recently lost weight and now I have amenorrhea, how can I get my menstrual period back? I'm 16, I haven't had sex so I'm not pregnant.

I recently lost weight and now I have amenorrhea, how can I get my menstrual period back? I'm 16, I haven't had sex so I'm not pregnant.

Weight loss is key: It is not uncommon for a teenage girl to have her periods stop after weight loss, especially if it is a lot (e.g. more than 10 lb). The most common causes are lots of exercise (e.g. competitive swimming) with not enough food intake, or an eating disorder. Regaining the lost weight usually restarts periods but it can take a while. Suggest you see either an adolescent medicine or ped endocrine ...Read more
