Amenorrhea is defined as delay or absence of menstruation in a woman reproductive years. Women who have a delay or absence of period used to think that they may be pregnant, in fact, there are many reasons of amenorrhea.

Low-dose combination birth control pills which contains low-dose synthetic forms of the hormones estrogen and progesterone may be use to treat amenorrhea by controlling the menstrual cycle or bring the period back.
2. Risks and side effects

2. Thyroid disorders
Many women are experience amenorrhea as a result of thyroid normal abnormality, specially with primary amenorrhea, I would like to direct you to my previous articles
a. Hyperthyroidism in Pregnancy (Not post Yet)
b. Hypothyroidism in Pregnancy (Not post Yet)
The subjects may be difference but the treatment be either the same with more aggressive due to no existence of pregnancy.

3. Pituitary disorders
Depending to how the pituitary gland cause of amenorrhea, including Pituitary Tumors, Growth Hormone Deficiency, Hypopituitarism, Hyperpituitarism, etc., you may be given prescrided medication to block hormone action, shrink pituitary tumors, etc., or surgery. I will come back with an article of women menstrual condition - Pituitary disorders later.

4. Surgery
If diagnosis found out the cause of amenorrhea is due to structure problems or the existence of tumors, cysts, etc.,then surgery may be the best choice. please remember no matter how good your surgeon is, surgery will always leave some scars that may lead to other reproductive problems later in your life, including infertility, although the chance is very rare.
