Secondary amenorrhea is more common and is caused by several factors. If a woman experiences no menstruation for 3 months or more, it is recommended they speak to a doctor to determine the root cause of the condition.
Causes of No Menstruation for 3 Months
Causes of secondary amenorrhea or no menstruation for 3 months include:
A woman may experience amenorrhea due to natural occurring causes, including:
- Pregnancy – When a woman is pregnant, normally, no ovulation occurs which results in having no menstrual cycles.
- Breastfeeding – Lactational amenorrhea occurs in women who are fully breastfeeding their babies. They will not be having their menstruation for 3 months or longer.
- Menopause – A woman approaching menopause usually experiences frequent amenorrhea until such time that they no longer have menstrual cycles for at least 12 consecutive months. Menopause typically happens in women in their 40s and 50s.
