Hello Anonymous,

You must schedule an appointment with a gynecologist. With blood tests to check hormone levels, and a physical exam, the physician can determine why you have not started to menstruate.

Absent menstruation, or amenorrhea, is the absence of menstrual bleeding. It happens when a girl hasn’t had her first menstrual period by age 16.

It may be caused by various lifestyle factors, including body weight and exercise levels. In some cases, hormonal imbalances or problems with the reproductive organs might be the cause.

Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate your feelings, waiting for a positive change and yet seeing such little progress. But, there does appear to be progress, if your uterus is growing in size.

As you know, a hypoplastic uterus is a congenital, meaning present at birth, condition in which the uterus is very small in size.

It appears that the current treatment with hormone replacement therapy is working, even if slowly.

Finding a support group of women who are having a similar experience as you might be helpful for you. The support and friendship of people who know what you are going through might be the best therapy. Ask your doctor for referrals or recommendations for such a group.

Hello snq,

The female reproductive system develops from two ducts called the mullerian ducts. As the embryo develops, these ducts evolve to become the fallopian tubes, vagina, ovaries, and uterus. Abnormal development of the mullerian ducts results in congenital uterine malformation.

Symptoms of a hypoplastic uterus range from amenorrhea or the absence of menstruation, infertility, and recurrent pregnancy loss

A hypoplastic uterus is diagnosed on the basis of its small size as seen on an MRI scan.

Any congenital defects of the reproductive system cannot be detected at birth. Any concerns about an adolescent's normal development during puberty should be discussed with your pediatrician.
