Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Firstly, please don't stress too much about pleasing your husband with a second or how many kids your friends have.  All bodies are different and none of us will have the same amount of kids and that is just fine! 

If your pregnancy tests are all negative, then it's unlikely you are not pregnant. 

Amenorrhea refers to the absence of a menstrual cycle. Primary amenorrhea occurs if an adolescent female has not yet begun menstruation by around age 16 or so. Secondary amenorrheadescribes a condition in which a woman who has previously menstruated on a regular basis misses three or more periods in a row. In the United States, amenorrhea affects between 2-5% of women.

Secondary amenorrhea is most commonly caused by pregnancy. But in nonpregnant women, amenorrhea may result from a variety of factors, including an existing medical condition, lifestyle, emotional distress, hormonal irregularity, or medication. Every effort should be made to determine the exact cause. Specific causes of amenorrhea include:

  • Dramatic weight loss, particularly from drastic diets, eating disorders includinganorexiaandbulimia, or excessive exercise
  • Dramatic weight gain or morbid obesity
  • Malnourishment
  • Birth defects including lack of a uterus, vagina, or other reproductive organs
  • Medical conditions includingcystic fibrosis,Cushing's disease,polycystic ovary, orPrader-Willi syndrome
  • Psychological stress—can lead to a hormonal imbalance sufficient to cause amenorrhea.
  • Medications—some antidepressants, chemotherapeutics, corticosteroids, certain contraceptives.
  • Chromosomal abnormalities
  • Hermaphroditism (having both male and female reproductive organs)
  • Pituitary tumor
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Uterine scarring

Anon, does any of the above apply to you?

We hope to hear back from you!
