How do you treat secondary amenorrhea?


Answer by  skm (432)

There is no single treatment for secondary amenorrhea. Essentially secondary amenorrhea means that at one time you had regular periods but now you don't have periods. The most important part of the "treatment" of secondary amenorrhea is finding a cause for it: causes range from pregnancy to malignancy.

You should go and see a doctor because this is not something that you can treat on your own at home. The doctor will give you something to get things back to normal. Most likely a hormone such as medroxyprogesterone.
