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

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?

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

Secondary amenorrhea: ok weight, no pcos, NT pregnant, high testosterone, no thyroid prob. Why? How to treat? Gynae said hi dose of contraceptive pil?

Secondary amenorrhea: ok weight, no pcos, NT pregnant, high testosterone, no thyroid prob. Why? How to treat? Gynae said hi dose of contraceptive pil?

You have PCOS !: Based on your statement that you don't have pcos but have high testosterone is quite contradictory, as high testosterone in women with irregular menses is the very definition of pcos. Having said that, women with pcos do not need high estrogen, as pcos is a condition that affects ovulation (progesterone release) rather than estrogen production. Only in certain conditions that high estrogen is need. ...Read more

Ihave a primary hypothalamic amenorrhea i want to ask is it curable ?Can i be pregnant?Iam too depressed iam 29 years old?

It may be corrected-: An endocrinologist would be the best person to consult on this, but as i recall when an illness or condition results from failure of the hypothalamus to put out enough hormone, an external source of hormone is utilized. Similar to when a diabetic takes insulin. Some people stop growing until they are given growth hormone. Correcting the deficiency could correct amenorrhea, infertility & depression. ...Read more

Unprotected/oxymoron: An oxymoron is a statement that contradicts itself on its' face. If your girlfriend is consistently taking the oral contraceptive pill, then she is protected from pregnancy from sexual encounters, but not from STD's if a condom is not used. Her risk for pregnancy is less than 0.1%. ...Read more
